Will Hillary Rodham Clinton be America’s first female president? Only time will tell. In one of PPW’s most popular posts (From FDR to Obama: Young U.S. Presidents) we took a Delorean back to see what the last 13 presidents looked like in their younger years. Since we aren’t out of plutonium yet, we decided to collect some of our favorite photos of this special lady, who could end up being the next leader of the free world.

COMMANDER IN FEAST!

15 Dec 2010

Believe it or not, The President meets with a turkey every year.  Well a few turkeys, but this one is special.  In honor of Thanksgiving, the Commander in Chief hangs out with a live domestic turkey of Broad Breasted White variety (wiki) and in grand American tradition, takes lots of pictures and dances at a disco and stuff.

George H.W. Bush (the one we like better) was the first leader to grant a presidential pardon to the turkey – in turn, saving the bird’s life from the other tradition many Americans enjoy – eating the crap out of a bird carcass and passing out on the couch.  You know you love it.  Or you did love it before you went Vegi.  Or, you really don’t love it and you love tempeh.  I love tempeh.

Here is a presentation of presidents and some turkey PR.  (1) A loose chronological examination (2) A Dubbya examination:
