    President Bush will be accompanied by an unprecedented number of Senior Administration officials including Vice President, Dick Cheney, Secretary of State, Colin Powell, National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice, Attorney General John Ashcroft, Trade Representative Bob Zoellick, Secretary of Agriculture, Ann M.
