Misty water-colored memories

Of the way we were

Scott McClellan is the press secretary to U.S. President George W. Bush; Scott Reid is the senior strategist to Prime Minister Paul Martin.

But, according to Mr. Bush, Mr. Martin has the prettier Scott.

…Mr. Bush wandered over during Mr. Reid’s chat with the Prime Minister. Mr. Reid introduced himself and shook hands with Mr. Bush.

…The President chuckled. “Well, you got a pretty face,” he told the surprised Mr. Reid. He wasn’t done. “You got a pretty face,” he said again. “You’re a good-looking guy. Better looking than my Scott anyway.”

This is true. His Scott has a receding hairline and is on the chubby side, while Mr. Martin’s Scott has a full head of hair and is quite fit.

For the first time in his life, Mr. Reid had no reply. “I didn’t know what to say,” said Mr. Reid, noting later that he wished that Mr. Bush had referred to him as a “rugged-looking young man or something.

“But I’ll take what I can, I guess,” he joked. “When a Texas Republican says you’ve got a pretty face, then I guess there is just no way around it.”

<sigh>
