Breaking News

After eight stressful years on the job, President Bush will deliver a farewell address to the nation on network television at 8 p.m. on Thursday, the White House announced.

The address will be 10 to 15 minutes long, from the East Room of the White House.

White House press secretary Dana Perino e-mailed reporters: "Continuing a ritual that dates back to George Washington, President Bush will deliver a farewell message to the American people Thursday night. He will reflect on his time in office and the ways our country has changed these past eight years. He will also uphold the tradition of presidents using farewell addresses to look forward — by sharing his thoughts on greatest challenges facing the country and on what it will take to meet them."
