WASHINGTON, D.C.: Cautious as he is with interest rates, Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan was even more careful when it came to popping the question to NBC's Andrea Mitchell. It took him 12 years of courtship, but the answer was a resounding "yes." The two will marry this Sunday at the upscale Inn at Little Washington in suburban Virginia, with a flock of Washington bigwigs in attendance. It will be the second marriage for both. Mitchell, 51, a hard-news Washington reporter who met Greenspan when he headed the Social Security bail-out commission, says that "rational exuberance" not unlike the one Greenspan says currently plagues the stock market finally sparked her shy suitor to make his move. So far, true to form, Greenspan, 71, isn't saying much about his big day, opting instead to express his feelings by handing out phony $100 bills with the couple's picture. By all accounts, the busy power couple has not planned a honeymoon. -- Elizabeth Owen
