Aging Baby Boomer (that’s a lot of us) President Bush turns 60 today.

He’s packed a lot into today: meeting with the Prime Minister Stephen Harper of Canada before flying to Chicago where he will spend the night after a birthday dinner with Mayor Daley and “opinion leaders.”

On Friday, Bush, who usually just touches down in the area for one event, headlines a funder for GOP candidate for governor Judy Baar Topinka gives a speech at the Museum of Science and Industry and heads to Aurora in Rep. Judy Biggert’s (R-IL.) district to give a speech bolstering the “America Competitiveness Agenda” unveiled in his State of the Union address.
