The annual White House Easter Egg Roll, started by President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1878, typically has been a rite of spring in Washington. But on Monday, it was afflicted by winter’s parting bite – cold air and even colder grounds. Undaunted by any of this, the young guests sprang into action under the watchful eyes of their families, hostess Laura Bush and several Bush administration Cabinet secretaries.
After her welcome, the first lady sat in one of the area’s designated reading nooks and read “Duck for President,” by Doreen Cronin. It’s a story of a duck who gets sick of farm chores and decides to run for office – first for head of the farm, then governor and, finally, president. In the end he decides running the country is too much work and goes back to the farm.
