"I said, 'Get me President Bush on the phone.' They said he was in the middle of giving a speech in Philadelphia. I said, 'I don't care: I have to talk to him now.' They got him off the podium, brought him to another room, and I spoke to him. "I told him, 'You can't vote in favor of this resolution. He said, 'Listen, I don't know about it. I didn't see it. I'm not familiar with the phrasing.'" So Prime Minister Olmert told President Bush: "I'm familiar with it. You can't vote in favor." Bush did as he was told: "Mr. Bush gave an order to Secretary of State Rice and she did not vote in favor of it a resolution she cooked up, phrased, organized and maneuvered for," said Olmert triumphantly. "She was left pretty shamed, and abstained on a resolution she arranged."
