On the Today Show Friday morning, George W. Bush finally revealed his long-awaited portraits of different world leaders. Some, like the portrait above of Russian President Vladimir Putin, really capture the soul of their subject. Others... not so much, though they still show an improvement from Bush's Cat Period.

Tony Blair "I like it because it conveys a compassionate person and a strong person and a reliable friend," Bush told his daughter Jenna Bush Hager, who works as a correspondent for the show.
