"Have an awesome President's Day"

I went for brunch with some friends over the weekend. The food was OK... and the conversation covered everything from the 2008 election to the latest reality TV show disasters… But the most interesting moment came when it was time to split the bill…

As we were digging into our pockets to find what we owed, one of my friends held up a twenty…

“Look at that… Andrew Jackson… of all the presidents, he has the BEST hair!”

I quickly scanned every bill I had in my wallet –      2 ‘Washington's’, a ‘Lincoln’, and ‘Jackson…’ She had a point – He’s pretty hard to beat. 

To all our surprise, splitting the bill worked out – nobody had to put in ‘extra’ and we walked outside to go our separate ways. Before we split up, I said to one friend:

“If I don’t see you tomorrow, have an awesome President’s Day!”
 

She laughed, I continued…

“Who are you going to be tomorrow?” 

She seemed puzzled… I figured I’d explain

“You know, who are you going to be? I’m going in to work tomorrow as Abraham Lincoln”
 
Bloggers, I have to be honest with you… I couldn’t do it – maybe it’s because I couldn’t find a good top-hat and beard in time for today, maybe it’s because I was afraid security would haul me out of the building… but nonetheless, it got me thinking – Who is my favorite president? 

So on this President’s Day, I throw the question your way…
Who is your favorite president?
