Bush: CNN's Candy Crowley Gave Me A Virus!

Posted: Updated:

At this morning's press conference on Iran, serious talk eventually dwindled and the President made small talk with reporters. When conversation turned to the 2008 election and the upcoming Iowa caucuses, President Bush got nostalgic...sort of. He'll miss the rush of campaigning, but he won't miss getting sick at the hands (germs) of CNN's Candy Crowley, who apparently gave him a respiratory infection in 2000. His full comments:

"What I'm not gonna miss, which is what we all, some of us went through in 2000, which was getting on an airplane and having...my friend Candy Crowley pass a virus around. I got a respiratory infection, so did half the press corps. They got off the plane; I didn't get to get off the plane! It was tough."
