As you may have heard, there was something of a Presidential reunion in the Oval Office earlier this week, when President-elect Barack Obama met and lunched with President Bush as well as former Presidents Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Jimmy Carter. Or so they would have us believe. In this week’s Friday Photo by Doug Mills and pretty much all of the shots we’ve seen of what Obama called an “extraordinary gathering,” Carter has a wonderfully Photoshopped-in quality about him. Meanwhile, we hear that after lunch, they retired to the south lawn for a rousing game of ultimate croquet, blue ties versus red ties.
