As current and former heads of state gather in Dallas, Thursday, to honor George W. Bush, it would be wrong to ignore the cracks in the former president's legacy. Leave it to Bill Clinton to address the elephant in the room: George W.'s paintings. "Your mother showed me some of your landscapes and animal paintings and I thought they were great. I seriously considered calling you to paint my own portrait, until I saw the emails that were stolen from your sister's account," Clinton said. "Those bathroom sketches were wonderful. But at my age, I think I need to keep my suit on."
