    I should point out that as the post says at the beginning, this was not really meant to be a serious “list”, but only one that I found interesting without having done the full research. That is an interesting analysis on the link that you provided and not one that I would attempt to delve into for challenge. I am not American, and did not wish to hint at any disrespect to two of the country’s great leaders.
