The Hawk is right about Calvin and Hobbs. Every kid deserves a tiger of his own. Oddly, Eisenhauer turned out to be a honest, intelligent president who faced down Gov. Faubus in Little Rock and was the first to identify, and name, the "military-industrial complex. Adlai may well have been the more qualified candidate but Ike has never recieved his due. he may have been late in taking on McCarthy, but he, finally, did. I, recently, heard a recording of presidential speeches from Taft to Bush, the first. Eisenhauer stood out, as did JFK and FDR. Truman was waspish, Nixon was snide, Reagan was vapid, Bush was wooden and, great disappointment, Carter sounded frustrated and rudderless. when you really think about it, we are lucky that any of the people we elect are qualified.
