It feels like years since I posted, even though I think I served something up Friday. Anyway, here is a little eye candy from the folks over at the AP and the NYT about 43. They were reviewing their favorite photos of him, dark back corner of a bar-style. Now it is my turn to editorilize a little.

You live in the spotlight for 8 years and there are bound to be a "few" of these. Still, I couldn't help looking at this and thinking, "Well, doesn't that just about sum it up?"

Then I saw this one. I just have to give the benefit of the caption, if for no other reason than to lend some credibility:

U.S. President George W. Bush writes a note to Secretary of State Condoleezza
Rice during a Security Council meeting at the 2005 World Summit and 60th General
Assembly of the United Nations in New York September 14, 2005. World leaders are
exploring ways to revitalize the United Nations at a summit on Wednesday but
their blueprint falls short of Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s vision of freedom
from want, persecution and war. (REUTERS/Rick Wilking)

Catch the rest here. Look, I don't think the next 8 years will be perfect, but I lived through the last eight, and I know how I feel about them. The White House just seems a little whiter now.
