Every four years politics in the U.S. can reach an awkward stage. Between Election Day and Inauguration Day there is a couple of months where 'the most powerful man in the world' often has to deal with the end of his/her era. Known as the 'lame-duck' period, soon-to-be-former presidents either seize the moment to make a legacy, or shuffle through the end of an unpopular presidency.
Ever since the world heard the news that Obama would be the America's new president, Bush has been treated like the unpopular kid at school. It makes you feel sorry for the man who did help the U.S. through the second biggest attack on our soil (9/11).
