President Bush arrived last night in Savannah for the G-8 summit. The president landed along with first lady Laura Bush, national security advisor Condoleeza Rice, and many other policy advisors at Hunter Army Airfield just after 9pm. Following a quick greeting, he continued his journey to Sea Island.

Chatham County commissioner Billy Hair was among the people that were there to greet President Bush upon his arrival. He says the summit has begun.

"It's here, this is the beginning," Hair told us. "A lot of work and preparation went into putting this on, and our work is not over yet. It's just starting."

While the president hosts the G-8 summit, which begins Tuesday, Mrs. Bush will host a spouses program for the wives of G-8 leaders during the summit.
