President Bush In Cancun

WASHINGTON -- Just because Cancun is a magnet for college kids on spring break, don't think President George W. Bush will be partying on the beach during his two-day summit at the Mexican resort.

Answering questions in Washington at a forum before he left, he joked, "No Speedo here." And while the audience giggled at the image of a commander-in-chief in a tight swimsuit, he added, "Thankfully."

The president was joining Mexican President Vicente Fox and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper for the summit, which will focus on trade, terrorism and immigration.

Bush often jokes with questioners, either in news conferences or town hall forums. His swimsuit joke came during what he promised would be last question. He told the man who asked it, "Just testing your concentration."
