This picture is just bad-ass, despite my poor attempt at a joke in the title of the post. And really the only description of the photo that can do it justice is this caption that was originally included with the image:
In this handout photo provided by the White House, a folder for U.S. President Barack Obama (the 44th president) is shown, left for him by Former U.S. President George W. Bush on the Resolute desk in the Oval Office of the White House January 20, 2009 in Washington, D.C.
