Bush Couple Skips Twin's Graduations

American President GEORGE W BUSH and his wife LAURA will be notable absentees at their twin daughters' college graduation this month (MAY04).

JENNA and BARBARA BUSH will don their cap and gown alone, as their parents believe their attendance would create a distraction on their big day.

The First Lady's spokesman GORDON JOHNDROE says, "The Bushes felt the focus should be on the students, and not how long the lines are to go through the metal detectors."

Jenna is picking up her Bachelor's degree in English from the UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS in Austin on 22 May (04), while her sister Barbara gains her humanities degree from Connecticut's YALE UNIVERSITY two days later (24MAY04).
