Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is 76 years old. So it's understandable if he gets a little tired going to and from the numerous functions his political career demands of him. He even allowed himself to take a nap in the middle of the ceremony dedicating the new George W. Bush Presidential Center on Thursday.
