Michael Cavna’s “Comic Riffs” blog at The Washington Post’s Web site has culled the many political cartoons based on President-Elect Barack Obama’s recent White House visit with President Bush, and narowed the field to five favorites.

The site also offers an interview, posted Monday, with laid-off editorial cartoonist Steve Greenberg of the Ventura (Calif.) County Star, in which he discusses his termination.

“I thought I was the safest person in the industry — other than Mike Luckovich,” Greenberg says. “Of the rank-and-file cartoonists, I thought I was about the safest because it wasn’t a full-time position.”
