"Those bathroom sketches were wonderful, but at my age, I think I should keep my suit."

- Bill Clinton to fellow former president George W. Bush, at Thursday's dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas. Clinton said he thought Bush's landscapes and animal paintings were "great" and considered asking for a portrait until he saw the self-portraits Bush painted of himself in the bath and shower, which were released by a hacker in February. Bush, seated in the crowd, laughed loudly in response and jumped up to hug Clinton at the end of the speech.
