India is dead...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/India_(cat)

India "Willie" Bush (c. 1990 – January 4, 2009) was US President's George W. Bush and Laura Bush's black cat. She lived with the Bush family for almost two decades.

There was some controversy reported in India as several people were upset with the cat's name. In the southern Indian state of Kerala, for example, 101 dogs were reportedly renamed 'Bush' in protest to President Bush's cat being called India.[1]

In actuality, the cat is not named for the country of India, yet rather for baseball player Rubén Sierra who was nicknamed "El Indio", during his time with the Texas Rangers when Bush owned the team.[2]

The Bushes acquired India as a kitten in late 1991 or 1992 when twin daughters Barbara and Jenna Bush were 9. She died on January 4, 2009, at the age of 18.[3]

She was a cute cat.

Bush likes mammals like that, he was alway's talking about McCain's black baby.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
