Bush Meeting With Danish Leader, Marking 59th Birthday

President Bush has begun a round of meetings with Danish leaders as he gets ready for the G-Eight Summit -- and celebrates his 59th birthday.

As the president arrived at an official residence near Copenhagen, a band in red jackets and bearskin hats struck up "Happy Birthday."

Bush's stopover in Denmark is a thank-you to the Danes for keeping 500-plus troops in Iraq.

He's also having lunch with Queen Margarethe before heading to Scotland and the annual summit of the world's richest democracies and Russia.

The summit -- which will be dominated by talk of aiding Africa and global warming -- opens with a dinner hosted by Queen Elizabeth.
