When They Were Pooks

Here are some great pictures of George W. Bush and his pony, a Li'l Jimmy Carter and his pony, and a very young Sandra Day O'Connor. It sure is refreshing (and not a little bit sad in George's case) to see these powerful adults as children, all cherubic smiles and golden hair. Sometimes when I'm feeling intolerant and hateful towards political figures (although never towards Jimmy Carter or Miss O'Connor) I try to imagine them as someone's little Pook. Once upon a time all they really wanted was a pony and a tippy cup.
