On this year's White House Christmas tree will hang a most unusual ornament: a bulb saluting efforts to impeach President George W. Bush.

A bulb by Washington state artist Deborah Lawrence is decorated with pictures and text commending Rep. Jim McDermottJames (Jim) Adelbert McDermottSondland has 'no intention of resigning,' associate says Three women accuse Gordon Sondland of sexual misconduct Portland hotel chain founded by Trump ambassador says boycott is attack on employees MORE's (D-Wash.) efforts to impeach the president, the Washington Post reported. First Lady Laura Bush asked McDermott to select a local artist to decorate bulbs for the tree, and McDermott selected Lawrence.

"I was at first nauseated, then realized it was an opportunity...to highlight Jim McDermott because he's a hero of mine," Lawrence said.

"It really is too bad," said Sally McDonough, a spokeswoman for the First Lady. "I haven't seen the ornament, but I would hope that no one would take this as an opportunity to be divisive and partisan. There is a time and place for everything, and I don't think this is either."
