Graduation and campaigning

Both daughters graduated from college in May of 2004; the events were given heavy media coverage. This more open relationship with the media grew during the summer of 2004, prior to the 2004 U.S. Presidential election, in which the twins made several public appearances, including giving a speech to the Republican Convention on August 31.
