President Bush paints Washington red
President Bush was a man about town Wednesday night, swinging through three inaugural dinners and attending a ball that was one of the hottest tickets in Washington.
The president ended his night of pre-inaugural partying at the the Black Tie and Boots Ball, telling the Texas gala, "It's nice to be home." The invitation called on party-goers to wear formal gowns or tuxedos complete with bolo ties, cowboy boots and cowboy hats. Bush says America loves freedom and everybody deserves to be free.
