The person who would be president

“As to the Presidency, the two happiest days of my life were those of my entrance upon the office and my surrender of it.”

Super Tuesday is still exciting Wednesday morning. Amazing how hard the candidates are working to get the most difficult job in the world, as this eighth president knew.

Martin Van Buren (1837-1841)
