Bush Photo-Op -- The One that Got Away

Nothing like getting your picture snapped with a real, live hero to boost sagging poll numbers. And the White House was on the ball asking 20 year old Jeremy Hernandez to pose for a picture with President Bush.

“He was just, like, ‘Nope,’ -- Molly Schwartz, communications director for Mr Hernandez's employer, Pillsbury United Communities
Mr Hernandez is the guy who got 50 kids off the school bus on the collapsed Minnesota bridge.

He's been overwhelmed by his sudden fame. So when the President asked him to pose for a picture, he blew it off. Decided to go fishing instead. (NYT)
