*He asks Kalam what his leadership philosophy is.
*He says that, it is to surround himself with intelligent people.
*Bush asks how he knows if they're intelligent.
*"I do so by asking them the right questions," says the Kalam.
*"Allow me to demonstrate."
*Bush watches as Kalam phones Manmohan Singh and says,
*"Mr. Prime Minister, please answer this question:
*your mother has a child, and your father has a child, and this child
is not your brother or sister. Who is it?"
*Manmohan immediately responds, "It's me, Sir !"
*"Correct. Thank you and good-bye, sir," says the Kalam.
*He hangs up and says, "Did you get that, Mr. Bush?"
*Bush nods: "Yes Mr.
*President. Thanks a lot. I'll definitely be using that!"
*Bush, upon returning to
Rice to the test.
*Bush summons her to the White House and says, "Condoleeza, I wonder
if you can answer a question for me."
*"Why, of course, sir. What's on your mind?"
*Bush poses the question: "Uhh, your mother has a child, and your
father has a child, and this child is not your brother or your sister.
Who is it?"
*Rice was puzzled and finally asks, "Can I think about it and get
back to you?"
*Bush agrees, and Rice leaves. Rice immediately calls a meeting of
senators, and they puzzle over the question for several hours,but
can *come up with an answer.
*Finally, in desperation, Rice calls Colin Powell and explains the
*"Mr. Powell, your mother has a child, and your father has a child,
and this child is not your brother or your sister. Who is it?"
*Powell answers immediately,
"It's me, of course."
*Much relieved, Rice rushes back to the White House, finds George Bush,
and exclaims, "I know the answer, sir!
*I know who it is! It's our Colin Powell!"
*And Bush replies in disgust, "Wrong, Stupid
it's Manmohan Singh!"
