PHOTO INDEX: THE WHITE HOUSE.
We celebrate President's Day to honor our chief executives. At dinner Friday night at the fabulous Victory Pig, a buddy asked me my top 5 Presidents. They are:
2. Franklin Roosevelt.
3. Ronald Reagan.
4. George Washington.
5. Theodore Roosevelt.
In a poll by AOL, the top 4 are Lincoln, Reagan, Roosevelt (FDR) and Kennedy. George Bush comes in at #10 but in another poll 63% of Americans count him in the bottom third.
GOD AND YOU TUBE
Much has been made of the Mike Huckabee connection with the religious community. There is a seperation of church and state and nowhere was it made more clear in these two clips from one of my favorite TV shows, The West Wing. The first has President Bartlett at the peak of his Presidency coming down hard on a talk show host.
From espisode one is Bartlett throwing out the religious right wingers who want to "deal".
Even though this is fiction, we can all do well to remember that religion is private and the Presidency is public. For all who believe or don't.
It isn't my newphew Todd Edwards of Daytona, Florida and Wilkes Barre, Pa. (2 weeks out of the year) or former County Commissioner Todd Vonderheid either. The guy is a cereal eating pundit named Todd who tells us all about President's Day. From YOU TUBE:
