Bush fails on US geography

OKLAHOMA CITY (AFP) - George Bush, the self-proclaimed 'education president,' let geography teachers down yesterday.

Campaigning in Colorado, Mr Bush called the Democratic presidential candidate, Bill Clinton, 'the governor of a certain state . . . located somewhere between Texas and Oklahoma'. The Red River, not Mr Clinton's state of Arkansas, is the only thing between Texas and Oklahoma. 'The man who promised he would be America's education president doesn't know his geography,' said Mr Clinton's local campaign leader.
