If presidential legacies were tied to their number of succession to the Office. Some may disagree with my characterizations :), but I do acknowledge there is much more to these men than the few lines I've assigned to each.

 

Forty


went from silver screen to Commander in chief


from hostage scandal to the Iron Curtain


the Cold War birthed his famous words

“…tear down this wall!”

 



Forty One


a young naval aviator marked by Pearl Harbor


who later made millions from black gold


led us to the oil fields of the Persian Gulf


to liberate it’s…people

 



Forty Two


the first Baby Boomer


in the highest Office of the land


a champion of welfare and the young


sadly, took advantage of one


 


Forty Three


put the ‘W’ in the 'War on Terror’


and pursued the ‘Axis of Evil’


left no child behind, but started two wars


“Mission Accomplished” was his mantra



 

Forty Four


a son of the Pacific and Africa alike


brought death to terrorists and healthcare to millions


the first man of color embraced the Office with dignity


Egalitarian speaking from a House built by slaves



 

Forty Five


a man who came from privilege 


real estate magnate and blowhard provocateur


son of an immigrant, now come full circle


says "We're gonna build a wall!”
