WASHINGTON, DC - Remember that billboard that popped up about a year into Barack Obama's presidency? It showed a pic of George W. Bush with the caption, "Miss Me Yet?"

Yeah, some people were really missing George-the-Younger back then. But how about in 2015?

Well, it looks like Dubya's image has improved. Yeah, a new poll says 52% of Americans have a favorable impression of Bush 43.

He's more popular than Obama. Our 44th president has an approval rating of only 42%.

Hillary Clinton doesn't fare much better, with a favorability rating of 46%. And half of Americans say they flat out don't like her, at least not now.

Look who beats 'em all! Yeah, Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush both have 64% favorable ratings. Jimmy carter comes in with 56% approval.

Well, they say time heals all wounds. Apparently it also heals our bad feelings about our former presidents.

So, Mr. Obama, some folks don't like you so much right now. But be patient, maybe they'll love you in a few years.
