Freudian: Condoleezza Rice apparently made an interesting verbal slip at a dinner party. A New York magazine offers this description of what Rice said:

"As I was telling my husb—" and then stopping herself abruptly, before saying, "As I was telling President Bush."
Rice, who is single, is good friends with George W. Bush and his wife, Laura. The three of them have been known to spend much of their time together, including the weekends.

In fact, you may recall when Bush made his secret trip to Baghdad over Thanksgiving, Rice was one of the few people who accompanied him. During the undercover trip to the airport, Bush and Rice wore baseball caps to hide their identities. Bush had this to say about the experience:

"We looked like a normal couple," Bush later joked with reporters aboard Air Force One.
There's no scandal here. But it is interesting how close Bush and Rice have become, even if just on a professional level.
