Here's George W. Bush's painting of Jay Leno, presented last night

Bush presented this to Leno last night on the Tonight Show:

Part 1 of interview is here:

And Laura joined him later on:

Remainder of the interview is here (Part 3) and here (Part 4).

He discussed his low profile since leaving office in 2009: 
"I don’t think it’s good for the country to have a former president criticize his successor."

And had this to say:

“You have to believe in what you’re doing, first and foremost,” Bush said. “I relied upon my faith, my family helped a lot, and I had a good team around me, and did the best I could do. I’m also very comfortable with the fact that it’s going to take a while for history to judge whether the decisions I made are consequential or not and therefore, I’m not too worried about it, which I read some biographies of Washington, my attitude is if they are still writing about biographies of the first guy, the 43rd guy doesn’t need to worry about it.”
