I agree, he would beat both guys. I have always been interested in the history of American presidents. I've learned a lot about all of them that has fallen through the cracks over the years. I have mixed emotions about the presidential term limits. On the one hand it does push a president along before they would likely run out of gas anyway. However, once a century or so somebody comes along that is needed to push us forward, keep us from falling, heal us when we are wounded and set us free again to thrive. FDR fit this mold and I believe that Bill Clinton is such a rare politician that he fits this too. We will go on, but you have to wonder what might have been.
