During a European tour in June, President George Bush met with President Zarkozy. The two presidents also exchanged gifts: Sarkozy gave his guest a luxury Hermes saddle. Bush gave his host a set of rare US postage stamps bearing the Statue of Liberty, the original was a gift from France to the United States.
Back when I was the first Postmaster General I never dreamed the postage stamp would become a collectible. But I do like the idea. You can learn a lot from a little postage stamp -- just ask President Zarkozy!
