Peggy Noonan on the Oval Office photo-op with the five presidents:
Did you notice how they all leaned away from Jimmy Carter, the official Cootieman of former presidents? It was like high-school students to the new girl: “You can’t sit here, we’re the Most Popular table.”
The toxic “Cootieman” president in the photo wasn’t Carter. Sorry. It was the poseur Texan standing in the middle with the smirky “five minutes until recess” look on his face.
