here’s something that I heard on the radio as I was driving home from work tonight..
in a survey done by ABC television a while ago about presidents, abraham lincoln was voted the greatest president ever. while I like senor slim and tall, I tend to lean more towards franklin d roosevelt simply because he was more of a bad ass. anyone that can be pres-o-dent for more than two terms has got to be tops in my book. either way, here is the really interesting part of this poll:
among the younger white population, abraham lincoln was numero uno (or “one” for you really white folk)
among the older crowd, the bad ass franklin d roosevelt got their dentures flapping in the wind.
among the black population, bill “mr. smoke-my-cigar-baby” clinton was the fave.
granted clinton was just way too cool in my book, am I the only one that finds this oddly ironic?? correct me if I am wrong, but didn’t lincoln’s efforts during his short-lived presidency help pave the way for the abolishment of slavery?? hmmm, eh well.
time for bed. 🙂
