I think I see an Ace card up Tricky Dicky's sleeve. :D
What I love about both portraits is that all of the Presidents are wearing exactly what they would've worn in life while playing cards--nice touch having Nixon be the only one in a suit as in life he was never comfortable with dressing down. Even his closest aides never saw him wear anything less than a suit in private; Many even said he wouldn't even take off his suit jacket.
Ike was a big golfer and a rather casual man; He's attired as he would've been in life. Same with Reagan--there's many pictures of Reagan wearing the same exact shirt on his ranch; Same goes for Bush Sr and Jr.
And the Democratic Presidents were captured perfectly too--FDR with his cigarette and glasses, Truman with his button down shirt like he favored; Carter wearing his workman's shirt like he wears with his Habitat for Humanity, and the shot of Kennedy is taken directly from an actual picture of him--same clothes.
The only one who looks out of place is Clinton. I don't know--I can't imagine Clinton having that much class whiile playing cards. He strikes me as a guy who'd just wear jeans and a tshirt.
