This photograph of George Bush with Karl Rove's top aide Susan Ralston - who has just been forced to resign over the Abramoff scandal - obviously inspired HuffPosters. Some of the entries show intricate appreciation of the machinations of the Bush-Rove White House. Other entries imagine a more articulate President than we are accustomed to hearing. And some imply a President with a great interest in "congress"...

The 20 finalists are listed here in purely chronological order. Numbered from 01 to 20. There is no implicit or explicit import to the sequence in which they appear.

Under each submission is the name of the person who submitted it.

It's simple. Look at all the entries - and then cast your vote!

Just post your vote as a comment. Simply vote for the Entry number you think the best. Please vote just once and for one entry only.

The poll is open till midnight (Pacific Time) on Monday night (October 16th)

Then the votes will be counted and the winner declared on Tuesday morning.

(This time the vote count will be supervised by a Mr. Ken Blackwell from Ohio.)

No purchase necessary.
Void where prohibited.
Dishwasher & microwave safe.

Bush & Hastert BEGGING for HuffPo readers to caption them!

"She did not want to be a distraction to the White House at such an important time and so we have accepted her resignation. We support her decision and consider the matter closed."
