This development deepens the mystery.  The video shows the car moving along,

about.  A second limo that looks to be the same dimensions as the first is
backed up along the left side of the first limo from in front.  Witnesses

either from the video.  The white house people report that the Bushes did
not switch cars.  The video taker is behind a parked vehicle for several
seconds.  When she comes out from behind, the video shows the first limo
moving ahead slowly.  As it passes from the scene, the second limo is also

suddenly stall, fail to start on four tries, then a few seconds later start
