Couldn’t resist a little history lesson as it’s being made these days 🙂 –BONUS points if you can then put them in order of service years! 

1-Second wife is a physician; served also as senator from a state with population the size of San Francisco.

2-Fine young man from Indiana … but couldn’t spell “potato” right 🙂 .

3-He fought much bigger issues when he suddenly became president but drew a lot of flack for lifting his beagles by their ears.

4-Ooops.  You’re outta here was the verdict on a crooked VP serving an “I am not a crook” president.

5-Another “suddenly President” who was the first one to be impeached.  (Big points if you know WHY he was impeached.)

6-His daughter married the grandson of the president he served as VP.

7-Let’s hear it!  He “invented the internet!”

8-War hero whose son became president (so did he).
