Your Turn: Welcome to My World, Barack

This coming weekend, the NYT Mag is publishing a major article about “where this government has taken the United States and what sort of world it will leave for the next president.” It is based on interviews with Condi Rice, as well as Christopher Hill and Daniel Fried of the State Department and Gen. James L. Jones, former supreme allied commander.
I’m interest in your take on these prominent, and rather strange accompanying illustrations (sequenced in this order). I’m wondering what you think of the use of cartoons, specifically the shading and shadowing. I’m also curious how you read this as a vertical narrative or cartoon strip. Finally, I’m interested in what you make of the characterizations of Rice and Obama.
