Obama: JFK or FDR?



Text  



Here’s a reader poll from Philly.com, the Inquirer’s website:

Which former president is Obama the most reminiscent of?

Lincoln

JFK

FDR

I suppose they could have included Washington and Jefferson. Must have been an oversight.

Nobody else came to mind? This is the sort of thing that ought to embarrass the heck out of any self-respecting newspaper editor. Maybe by 2012 the choices will be broadened to include Carter, Johnson, or Chet Arthur.

Thanks to reader Matt M for the pointer.
