2008 Presidential Candidates Trivia
By woodjr on Dec 30, 2006
Don't worry, I'm not going to deluge you with any political opinions--just a few tidbits of trivia about the top contenders for the 2008 U.S. presidential election. Did you know that:
- Hillary Clinton was once president of the College Republicans organization at Wellesley College.
- If elected, Rudy Giuliani would be the first "true" only child in history to reach the U.S. Presidency. (Note: there have been three previous presidents who only had half siblings.)
- Barack Obama is a Grammy Award-Winning Artist.
- Senator McCain's father and grandfather were both U.S. Navy Admirals and make up the only father-son pair to have reached such rank in U.S. history.
Interesting stuff, isn't it? I'm sure it just scratches the surface, though. So please feel free to chime in with trivia I've missed about these or other candidates.
