Call Me By My Name (For President’s Day)

I’m hardly qualified to run a country, but I do have one thing in common with a quarter of the men who’ve held the top U.S. job.

The survivors: George H. W. Bush, Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Jimmy Carter
The Mount Rushmore four: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln
Franklin Pierce: Arguably the worst U.S. President, he has something in common with one of the three best.
A pair of originals: a Ulysses and an Abraham
The one and only Barack!
