    Favorite President (last 12)

    who's your fav?

    the first rule: is never talk about fight club

    the second rule: is you have to have been alive during the Pres term to vote for him.

    I went way back to FDR just in case there are some really old people on here.

    Hey, way to hijack my thread!!! Just kidding.


    "I think that people are responding to someone standing up and saying this is what we want to do and let's not be afraid to go for it,'' Pollard said. "I think Iowa State has a very conservative, modest background. We never pound our chest and say `Let's do it.' It's OK to set a goal. You can't do it if you don't say what you want to do. You should be proud of it.''

    I'll go with Bill, just b/c of the awkwardness he caused for so many teachers and parents around the world...one man defined the meaning of sexual relations. Plus his VP invented the internet.

    Theodore Roosevelt: "Speak softly and carry a big stick." One of my favorite quotes of all time.

    Back in 7th grade, I remember some smart-alec kid answering to a roll call by saying "I did not have sexual relations with that woman." The class went crazy and the teacher was just stunned.


    Remember that stressed spelled backwards is desserts!

    Lyndon Johnson has one of my all time favorite quotes. However, it may not be completely appropriate here. If you're interested, Google "lyndon never trust" and look at the 1st entry.

    I'd vote for Nixon over Carter every time. No I didn't vote for Nixon but he was better than most give credit.
