President Bush recently visited Europe, trying to mend political rifts caused by the war in Iraq and attempting to garner support for a range of causes. Among them: curbing Iran and North Korea's nuclear ambitions, sustaining an Israeli-Palestinian peace and safeguarding democracy' fragile hold in Russia. NPR's Ed Gordon examines the trip with Calvin Sims, editorial producer with New York Times Television and a former New York Times foreign correspondent, and Michael Fletcher, White House reporter with The Washington Post.
