Barack Obama, George W. Bush Both Headed for Dar es Salaam

Obama to finish his tour of Africa, Bush for a conference on women held by the George W. Bush Institute


President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush are planning to be in the same city a world away from home, but the question is whether they will get together.

The Democratic president was to fly Monday into Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, the last stop on a weeklong tour of Africa that wraps up Tuesday. His Republican predecessor coincidentally also plans to be there for a conference on African women organized by the George W. Bush Institute.
