A Future in Croatian Politics for Johndroe?

ZAGREB, Croatia -- Gordon Johndroe has been a fixture in Bushworld for a decade -- he worked on the 1998 governor's race in Texas and the 2000 presidential race, served as an assistant White House press secretary, Department of Homeland Security press secretary, the first lady's press secretary and strategic communications director for the State Department and now works as the chief spokesman for the National Security Council.

But with the days of the Bush administration dwindling, it looks as if he may have a future in Croatian politics. Johndroe ran into the foreign minister of this tiny Adriatic nation today during President Bush's visit here to celebrate NATO expansion. The foreign minister handed the NSC spokesman his card: Gordan Jandrokovic.

"Do you have any Croatian blood in you?" Gordan Jandrokovic asked Gordon Johndroe.

Not that he knows of. But that shouldn't stop his new political career.
