Africa Trip Designed to Show Compassionate U.S.

President Bush leaves Friday for a six-day trip to Africa. The president is traveling to Benin, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ghana and Liberia. All have benefited from U.S. aid to save lives and develop their countries.

Bush is hoping his trip changes his image — from a president who takes his country to war to a leader who helps countries.
