I think Abe was the tallest!

My favorite quote from JFK:
"I need this fucking parade like I need a fucking hole in the head"

I feel so miserable without you; its almost like having you here.

Chuck, I never knew Franklin was a president...or Kerry for that matter.

Franklin WAS president. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, of course.[:D]



Please get rid of old Ben. He may have invented the wood stove, and may have been the governor representing the state of PA, but he was NO president of the USA.

Where's Truman?

I agree, Rosevelt should be on there, and so should Truman.

His decision to use the atomic bomb saved tens of thousands of American lives. A Normandy attack on Japan was in the works. I don't think he was our greatest president, but Clinton and GHWB? Come on? I think Lincoln gets the honor.
