Is President Bush a good-luck charm? The commander in chief pops up in a surprise good-luck video on tonight's episode of "Deal or No Deal" for Army Capt. Joe Kobes, a Purple Heart and Bronze Star recipient. The 29-year-old transportation officer served three tours in Iraq (he re-upped for three more years and is currently training at Fort Lee, Va.) and calls the president his hero. So the show's producers called Washington, and Bush taped the video -- the first time he's appeared on the NBC game show. White House spokesman Tony Fratto called it an "emotional moment" -- yeah, but did Kobes pick the $1 million briefcase? Lips are sealed; have to watch to find out.
