Bush, McCain dine on hot dogs in White House lunch
WEST PALM BEACH, Florida (Reuters) – President George W. Bush may have given presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain the royal treatment at the White House on Wednesday, but the two men did not exactly have a meal fit for a king.
McCain, an Arizona senator, picked up the president’s endorsement for his candidacy while dining on something simple: a hot dog.
“He said he was having a hot dog, so I had a hot dog,” McCain, referring to Bush, told reporters on his campaign plane during a flight to Florida.
So does a hot dog taste any different when it’s prepared in the White House?
“It tasted pretty much the same to me,” McCain said.
