Historical facts, thoughts, ramblings and collections on the Presidency and about the Presidents of the United States.
By Anthony Bergen
It is always cool to see a gathering of the living Presidents, especially at those rare points in history when there are five members of the fraternity alive and well.
And, if we’re going to be realistic, with the next Presidential Inauguration well over three years away, no more Presidential Library openings on the horizon until Obama leaves office and completes his, and the fact that two of our surviving Presidents will turn 89 years old this year, today’s gathering of Presidents Obama, George W. Bush, Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Carter at the opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Dallas is likely the last time we will ever see these five Presidents together in public.
