WASHINGTON — Facing criticism that he appeared disengaged from the disaster wrought by Hurricane Katrina, President Bush has been looking for opportunities to show his concern. But the White House will take the effort a step further Tuesday, venturing into untested waters by putting the nation's first lady on reality television.

Laura Bush will travel to storm-damaged Biloxi, Miss., to film a spot on the feel-good, wish-granting hit "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." Mrs. Bush sought to be on the program because she shares the "same principles" that the producers hold, her press secretary said.

In its standard format, the popular ABC series finds hard-pressed but deserving families, sends them away for short vacations and then, in a whirlwind of carpentry and appliance-shopping, gives them new homes. This time, though, the show will broadcast from an underserved shelter near Biloxi, where a convoy of trucks stocked with everything from mattresses to pants will arrive, courtesy of Sears, one of the show's sponsors.

It's not clear exactly what Mrs. Bush will do, but Tom Forman, executive producer and creator, said he is hoping that she'll just pitch in and help unload.


so it looks like the White House intends to use Laura's charm and the most popular First Lady for PR campaign to show someone like Bush's wife cares. wonder how dirty would Laura would want to get.

That article is pretty snarky, but it's just covering the facts.

Mrs. Bush sought to be on the program (Extreme Makeover: Home Edition) because she shares the "same principles" that the producers hold, her press secretary said.

Let's hope this is better than her husband's long running series Extreme Makeover: American Edition now in it's fifth season.
