Wondering about one term presidents.

Since it is election day I got wondering about how many presidents who ran for a second term didn't make it.  I found a list on the internet and I was surprised to see that there were so many.  How many can you name?  Is that all?  Well, just for your information I will list a few here:

George H.W. Bush

Jimmy Carter

Gerald Ford

Herbert Hoover

William Howard Taft

Benjamin Harrison

Grover Cleveland

Martin Van Buren

John Quincy Adams

John Adams

Now that is quite an impressive and long list but it isn't so long that we can't add another name to the list today.  What do you think?  I will know later today if it will be a good day or not, but hope you all have a great day, you hear.


  1. I knew the most recent 3 and John Adams.

  2. I'm afraid the current pres won't be on that list. :( Don't think there's much hope for this country no matter who wins the election though.

  3. Sixbears, even at my advanced age, I only knew the last three.

    David, I hope you are right on the list growing by one. I hope we can pull together and save this great nation, but it will take a lot of work.

  4. Hate both candidates, so i agree with tffnguy.

  5. Trouble, I voted and so did my wife.

  6. Dizz the trouble is not in the administrative branch it's in the legislative

  7. Justastick, I think you may be right about that.
