their wives.

4) Each wife had lost a child while living at the White House.

That’s interesting stuff, I wonder if it’s completely accurate? I have always liked Lincoln more than Kennedy; in fact I have always been a bit irritated with the Kennedy family.

My History teacher gave my class a copy of stuff similar to that. Some freaky yet neat stuff.

Watch out president in 2060!!!!!!!!

If everything works out the same (conspiracy), then he/she is a dead man/woman.

I have read these somewhere before. They fuel much of the conspiracy theories out there.

Actually, there is a lengended that the US presidents are cursed by the indians for all the horrible stuff we did to them. The lengend has it that presidents that was elected w/ the year ending 0 were assassinated, well at least attempted assassinations since Regan survived the attempt on his life.

Oooooh, G.W.B was close. If it weren't for Florida and the "indescision 2000", he would have to be very careful.

I don't think there is anything strange or weird about this. That is just a few things that the two guys had in common, however, I believe that the stuff that they never anything in common would be alot greater, but no one seem to care about it.
