The Answers

Posted by AlienCG on November 6, 2008

I have been a bit uninspired to post.  I think I’m just tired since the weather appears to be undecided at this time.  I will back and up to posting par before you know it.  For now, I am going to give the answers to the Trivial Tuesday questions.

How many presidents have we had?  We just elected the 44th president, but he is only the 43rd person to get the job.  Grover Cleveland was elected to two non-consecutive terms.

How many vice presidents?  A total of 46 people (47 including Biden) have served as VP.

Who will be the president on November 5, 2008?  George W. Bush will be the president until January 20, 2009.

Why had no president prior to FDR run for more than two terms?  The 22nd Amendment was passed after FDR’s four election wins.  Before FDR, no president served more than 2 terms out of tradition (because George Washington resigned after his second term).

There you have it.  I will return next week with all of my regular features, including the video game countdown.  Have a good day.

    Babybull: I’ll give you credit for the first question (and you’re a Canadian). I should have asked, How many people have served as president?

    Nobody even guessed at the VP question.

    Laura B. got my trick question about November 5.

    Nobody gave a correct answer to the final question.
