Right now it really doesn't matter who you voted for this year or who the next guy up is, all that's important is that our current honorable leader GEORGE W. BUSH is looking at a month and change left as president of the free world. Last nite's talk with ABC anchor Charlie Gibson is being called W's "exit interview" and it was full of some epic quotes—"I think I was unprepared for war"—that will surely ring in our ears long after he's put out to pasture. In honor of Bush's imminent departure, we at Supertouch have assembled a small gallery of some of our favorite portraits of the prez to accompany the interview highlights:

“The thing that's important for me is to get home and look in that mirror and say, ‘I did not compromise my principles,’”

On retirement: “I'm going to have a lot of time to think. My day is going to go from getting up early-early, and being at the Oval Office at 6:45 a.m., and having a lot to do when you get there, to waking up at 6:45 a.m., getting Momma the coffee—and kind of wandering around trying—‘What's next, boss?’”

“I'm sure some people voted for Barack Obama because of me.”

“One of my parting words to Obama will be: ‘If I can help you, let me know.’”
