This is one of the more unusual President's Days.
But it is another one where the country is in peril.
Another one where we brought it on ourselves. Or a president brought it upon us I should say.
Leaders can be a good thing or a bad thing, and that seems to be a function of the eye of the beholder in most cases.
The historical position and popularity ranking of presidents morphs up and down as time goes on.
Much of that is due to the PR and even the propaganda efforts of a president, his staff, or historians long after the president leaves office.
