In January 2009, we'll inaugurate another left-handed President, either John McCain or Barack Obama. This will be the latest in a list of recent lefty Chief Executives that includes Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan (according to some accounts he was a "natural" lefty who was converted at a young age), George Bush the First, and Bill Clinton. If the 2000 election had been determined by the popular vote (or by a closer examination of Florida's hanging chads), then lefty Al Gore would have continued a rule of the lefty minority over the rest of us extending back to 1974 (with only a short break for Jimmy Carter).
What (if anything) is the significance of this string of sinister Commanders in Chief? Does Ned Flanders have anything to do with it?
