"HEIR to THE WHITE HOUSE"! Crowning Glory Daze

Rate: 5 Flag

There was a time when the Presidential Candidate who was the Tallest or had the most Hair would win the Election.  Well, that's how I always voted!

When was the last time you saw a bald President?  Not that there's anything wrong with that!

rudybald 

I guess he figured his baldness would hold him back; so he said WTF!

But the next morning...

Of course; there was "Ike, The Exception"!  But General Dwight D. Eisenhower usually had a Soldier's Cap or a Fedora on & you'd never know.

Pity poor Adlai Stephenson who ran against Ike as a Democrat in 1956.  He was bald too!  But how much of a chance did he have with the Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in World War II, that D-day Invasion thingy & a West Point Grad to boot!

And he had the first catchy Campaign Slogan: "I LIKE IKE".  Okay, there was "Tippecanoe & Tyler Too"; but I promise you - I wasn't there!

adlai 

Adlai was so bald; they called him "Egghead"!  Known for his quick wit, deep intellect & eloquence in support of liberal causes; in September 1952 while campaigning he said:

"I've been thinking that I should make a Proposition to my Republican friends...that if you stop telling lies about the Democrats, we will stop telling the truth about them"! 

 But his most profound quote was: 

"The hardest thing about any Campaign is how to win without proving that you are unworthy of winning"!

Balding Hubert Humphrey lost to Nixon; who had hair.

All winners had Hair!

Andrew Johnson had hair but who wants a President who looks like he's smelling burnt rubber!

"See this Grey - that's Monica"!

Vice President Joe Biden got the Memo in the 90's & went the "Hair Plugs" route; just in case he would be 2nd in line for the throne.  And it paid off; his IRS Form that year took care of that - under "White House Beautification Slush Fund"!

Whereas "Good Hair" can somehow backfire on you:

You see - Blagojevich wasn't a Candidate; he was just about to sell Obama's Seat in the Oval Office!

Hilarious post. I'm nostalgic for the days when an Ike or an Adlai could run hairlessly. And speaking of receding youth, I resemble that remark! Two big thumbs up, and thanks for the memories.
Right up front I want to say - I like bald-headed men! In fact; in every fantasy I have - they're bald. Of course; they're doing the dishes!
Thanks so much Dan! You know what they say about "Bald Men"! It's either - More Brains or Billiards Proclivity! But I could be wrong. Don't get me started on "Combovers"
Thanks so much Balt! From one Maryland girl to another; I say I agree 100%. As for me - I don't have a Fetish or anything - well that's what the Doc says! ha ha
Don't be dissin' "54-40 or Fight!" Now that's one badass campaign slogan.
I've always heard: Men who are bald in the front are good lovers, while men who are bald in the back are good thinkers. Although, men who are bald in the front and back just think they are good lovers.
In any case I loved this post for the bald facts!

Thanks so much Con! Now let's see - "54-40 or Fight" - was that...Peewee Herman or Grover Cleveland? I get those two mixed up!
Thanks so much Out on a Limb! Looks like you've been studying up on the subject! I find that Bald Men have the best sense of humor - they have to!
I take it that these height and baldness rules will apply to women too? What about women who can see Russia from their front porch?

.
Thanks for stopping by Sky! Do you mean Margaret Thatcher? You know baldness is hereditary - on your Mother's side!
Marilyn,
Didn't know that. At 70 I still have a full head of dark hair - as did my maternal grandfather - perhaps you are right!!!

.
Sky, you're amazing! Everyone's so jealous of your hair. No wonder I pictured you as 40 with a hot babe in each arm!
Marilyn,
Right "picture"..... wrong decade! (tee hee!)
.
You left out the best presidential hair of American history: JFK!!!
Thanks so much jmac! Didn't want to go there - if you know what I mean! He had to go all the way to Camelot to find a good Barber.
