One of my favorites of the great photos of the presidential portrait unveiling yesterday. Getty photographer Mandel Ngan manages to capture each actor as we have always known them: the “pause for laughs” expression on George Bush’s face and Laura Bush’s trademarked camera beam in the wrong direction. Ah, the Bush Administration…sigh.
