I often lament the fact that Calvin Coolidge is the “forgotten president,” and many who comment on our Facebook page often remark that Calvin Coolidge is “the most underrated president.” Well it seems recently that a number of men interested in joining the ranks of Coolidge’s White House successors have him on their mind! This is fantastic!
In honor of Presidents’ Day, NBC News did a quick poll of potential 2016 presidential candidates, asking them about their favorite presidents. Of the 21 potential candidates queried, only six responded, and of those six, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal both named Coolidge, among others, as their favorite president. Sen. Paul said of President #30: “Calvin Coolidge because he balanced the budget.” Gov. Jindal said “Calvin Coolidge for his focus on limited government and growing America’s economy.”
It’s great to see modern-day politicians taking an interest in Coolidge and admiring the responsible manner in which he led the ship of state! You can check out the full article at NBC News.
