Interesting. Cool to hear things that make them more human and easier to relate to. My favorite probably has to be that Quincy Adams regularly skinny dipped.

So Bush junior and William Henry Harrision both enjoy goats and Coolidge supplies the Vaseline. What a trio those three would make for each other.

Well...the only one I didn't know ...or remember was Franklin Peirce swore his oath on a law book and not the bible! My new favorite President!!! At least he had the stones to admit what most Presidents wont.

And a little extra tidbit about Andrew Johnson, he indeed was very drunk during his inauguration speech. And even vomited into the top hat he was wearing at the time.

Somehow it didn't surprise me that Nixon was a card shark, Reagan was a comedian and Baby Bush was a cheerleader.

Obama is a comic book geek. That might be his only saving grace for me!

I had a feeling though, He did a cameo in the last Spiderman comic! I've also tracked down some links, which are authentic, for 5 other pretty funny Obama comics 5 real Obama comics

I have a first printing of 'Barrak the Barbarian'. Not that impressive, but a nice addition to the collection.

It would also appear J F Kennedy and Bill Clinton had something in-common when it came to young interns.

Thanks to Ms. Alford’s memoir — which was released last week and well publicized — everyone now knows that, on the fourth day of her internship, after a trusted aide and go-between, David Powers, plied the 19-year-old intern with daiquiris, the president gave her a private tour of the White House residence and then took her virginity on the first lady’s bed. (Mrs. Kennedy, conveniently, was away.) They embarked on an affair that lasted 18 months, until Nov. 15, 1963,
I'm thinking other Presidents may of had a Taste For Young Interns,,,,,,, But Who?
