Why Did This Little Girl Run Away From President Bush?

The White House hosts an annual Tee Ball tournament on the South Lawn each summer, which the president himself attends. The kids get to meet him and shake his hand and stuff, which you'd think would be really exciting. But at the latest tournament, one little girl named Emily - obviously wise beyond her years - approached President Bush and then, for whatever reason, hightailed it out of there, Forrest Gump-style. And she just kept running. An eagle-eyed reader sent us a link to video of the incident, which we've manipulated in order to publicly ponder what might have happened that spooked little Emily so much.
