Clinton's bathroom humor about Bush paintings

(CNN) - President Bill Clinton delivered a few friendly jokes during his remarks at the George W. Bush Presidential Ceremony dedication ceremony in Dallas, with one of them poking fun at his successor's new hobby of painting.

"I probably shouldn't say this, but I'm going to anyway. Your mother showed me some of your landscapes and animal paintings, and I thought they were great. Really great. And I seriously considered calling you and asking you to do a portrait of me–until I saw the results of your sister's hacked e-mails," Clinton said. "Those bathroom sketches were wonderful, but at my age, I think I should keep my suit."

CNN: Representative: Father of Boston bomb suspects to fly from Russia to U.S.

His older son's body remains unclaimed. His younger son is hospitalized with severe injuries, and faces terrorism and murder charges. Anzor Tsarnaev is expected to step off a flight in the United States in the coming days after his travel from Dagestan. He may be bringing along important information for the investigation into the marathon bombings that killed three and injured hundreds on April 15. He is to depart for the United States as soon as Friday, human rights activist Kheda Saratova told CNN. Saratova is serving as the parents' representative. Tsarnaev has said he will cooperate in the investigations into the alleged crimes of his sons, Dzhokhar, 19, and Tamerlan, 26. The elder son was killed while the two allegedly violently resisted and fled police.
