President Bush has received a notice to appear for jury duty.
Chad at In The Bullpen says he's sure Michael Moore will use this in his tabulation of "vacation days" taken.
Iowa Voice asks the question.
I can't recall a single time where a sitting President has actually been called to jury duty, much less when one would be expected to serve.
The president is among 600 potential jurors who have been summoned to report to court Monday in McLennan County, where he has a 1,600-acre ranch.
State District Judge Ralph Strother said he expects to get a response about the summons but doesn't expect Bush to show up in his court.
"I don't think I'll be sending the sheriff out to bring the president in," said Strother, a Republican who has a grandson serving in Iraq. "It seems to me that the president has plenty of things to occupy his attention. Jury duty is a very important civic function, but running the country, I think, especially in wartime, takes priority over jury service."
Outside The Beltway
He should serve! :-)
[Even if it's a murder trial or something, it could provide a refreshing break from all that's been going on...]
P.S. - I wonder what would happen if you were summoned right in the middle of Finals Week.
