Four Great Presidents and One Sexy, Sexy Beast of an Awesome President
2. Calvin Coolidge: Silent Cal took over after a scandal-ridden Harding died and led with quiet integrity during one of the biggest expansions of the U.S. economy. Refreshingly reticent for a politician, he made his few words pack a great punch, such as "I choose not to run for president in 1928." Did he see what was coming in October 1929? I think that, had he been in office instead of regrettable Hoover, we'd have been spared the Great Depression and the even more loathsome FDR.
1. Grover Cleveland: My favorite of all presidents! This man ought to be the model for every person who aspires to hold the highest office of the land. He had profound integrity; i.e., he did what was right, not what was politically expedient. He was fearless, modest, hardworking, honest, understated, clear in thought and pure vision, without ever overreaching his Constitutional powers -- and is largely forgotten today by a thankless country. The best thing you can do this Presidents Day is to make a donation to fund the Grover Cleveland Library and Museum in Buffalo, NY.
