name the presidents in order from the time you were born. Lets see, Obama is #44, #30 Coolidge was president when I was born so that should make 15 of them, keep coming up one short.

I could. But then, I have fewer presidents to remember. Ask me again in 20 years. I don't remember LBJ, Nixon, or the VietNam war beginning. The end of Viet Name yes. Ford constantly falling, yes.... from there on out.

LBJ
Nixon
Ford
Carter
Reagan
Bush
Clinton
Bush
Obama

Wow Robin, I thought were a little younger than me. I can barely remember Ford, Carter is really the first president I truly remember while they were in office.

For the first 12 years of my life, (1932 forward), Franklin D. Roosevelt was our president. After him come

Harry S.Truman
David D. Eisenhower
John F. Kennedy
Lyndon B. Johnson
Richard M. Nixon
James Carter
Gerald Ford
Ronald Reagan
George Bush (father)
William J. Clinton
George Bush (son)
Barack H. Obama

(I can never keep the initials straight on the Bushes, so rather than embarrass myself, omitted them. I don't remember the other omitted middle initials, either.) :>(

George, who am I missing? If Coolidge was the 30th President and Obama is the 44th, I'm short one, also! Holy Smoke! This really is a *senior moment*!

Started out with Roosevelt (even though I was in Germany, I knew about him and the leading heads in Europe, met Truman when I was an Exchange student and came to the States when Eisenhower was President and on up. Where I had problems was keeping track of who was in/out in Italy and France, they changed head honchos for a while on a monthly basis.

RE: Bet you can't

Oh Rob, that's kind!

Seriously though, I studied Government and Politics, so it sort of stuck . .
