Bush has finally figured it out!

> On his trip to Great Britain, George Bush had a meeting with Queen
> Elizabeth. He asked her, "How does one manage to run a country so
> smoothly?" "That is easy," she replied, "You surround yourself with
> intelligent ministers and advisors." "But how can I tell whether they are
> intelligent or not?" he inquired.  "You ask them a riddle," she replied,
> and with that she pressed a button and said, "Would you please send Tony
> Blair in."
>
> When Blair arrived, the Queen said, "I have a riddle for you to answer for
> me. Your parents had a child and it was not your sister and it was not
> your brother. Who was this child ?" Blair replied, "That is easy. The
> child was me." "Very good," said the Queen, "You may go, now."
>
> So President Bush went back to Washington and called in his chief of
> staff, Karl Rove. He said to him, "I have a riddle for you, and the answer
> is very important. Your parents had a child and it was not your sister and
> it was not your brother. Who was this child?" Rove replied, "Yes, it is
> clearly very important that we determine the answer, as no child must be
> left behind. Can I deliberate on this for awhile?" "Yes," said Bush, "I'll
> give you four hours to come up with the answer."
>
> So Rove went and called a meeting of the White House Staff, and asked them
> the riddle. But after much discussion and many suggestions, none of them
> had a satisfactory answer. So he was quite upset, not knowing what he
> would tell the President.
>
> As Rove was walking back to the Oval Office, he saw former Secretary of
> State Colin Powell approaching him. So he said, "Mr. Secretary, can you
> answer this riddle for me. Your parents had a child and it was not your
> sister and it was not your brother. Who was the child? "That's easy," said
> Powell, "The child was me." "Oh thank you," said Rove, "You may just have
> saved me my job!"
>
> So Rove went in to the Oval Office and said to President Bush, "I think I
> know the answer to your riddle. The child was Colin Powell!" "No, you
> idiot!" shouted Bush, "The child was Tony Blair!"
