Presidents are people too

David Frum's Diary entry for yesterday helps explain why Presidents need vacations. Even during wartime.

They're just like you and I; they don't do well when they work 12 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year. I read criticism of Bush's 5-week summer vacation and have to laugh.

First off, is it impossible to be President anywhere but D.C.? Hardly. Secondly, can anyone make the argument that no President ever has or should have remained at the WH 24/7 for the duration of any of the nation's armed conflicts? Apparently life for the rest of the world just stops when servicemen are in harm's way.

There are plenty of valid criticisms of the Bush Administration. This just isn't one of them.
