Who Was the Best President of Your Lifetime? Baby Boomer Poll

By Margaret Manning June 27, 2015 Lifestyle

Since 1946, when the first baby boomers were born, to today, our generation has seen a lot of presidents. We’ve witnessed war and peace, scandals and, occasionally, true political dignity. Over the last 71 years, we have experienced long periods where “our” party held power – and, we have held our breath while “the other guys” had their time in the sun.

We haven’t always agreed with the decisions that our political leaders have made – and sometimes we spoke out passionately against them. But, for the most part, we have respected and participated in the process.
