Iconic Bush

U.S. President George W. Bush re-enters the White House East room to say goodbye to staff and friends after his primetime address in Washington, January 15, 2009. Bush on Thursday defended his actions to avert a collapse of the financial system and protect America from another terrorist attack as he mounted a farewell bid to polish his troubled legacy.

A final iconic image of Bush from my favorite White House photographer, Jason Reed.

The image comes from this New York Times collection of images of Bush throughout his presidency, which is really worth a look for many reasons, some amusing and some heartbreaking.
