How about Presidential Don Juans? Let's say you needed a President to seduce Angela Merkel...
I'd probably go with Ford for best athleticism in his peak. Andrew Jackson, for a small and skinny guy, was one real SOB though. He's the Billy Martin of presidents.
I would think the Adamses would be in the bottom 10.
Obama's brother-in-law, who coaches Oregon State, has said Obama could have played lower division college ball. That's pretty good but doesn't top Ford being able to play football at Michigan. I think Obama is probably in the best shape of any sitting president we've had in a long time, though. Maybe ever. He's youngish and he seems fairly dedicated to his exercise routine.
Andrew Jackson would win and I don't think it would be particularly close.
The thing is that Jackson could be careless in a rage and went into a rage fairly easily. He once got shot in the back by the brother of a man he was about to start pistol-whipping.
Chris Christie sure hopes so.
FWIW - here's a top 10 list that puts Ford #1...
Did W really play ball at Yale? I know his dad did, but I had never heard the younger did, only that he was a cheerleader. If he did, that raises him a few notches in my estimation of him.
Chris Christie, the new Andrew Jackson?
Both Bushes were in good shape in the White House, though the dad was obviously getting old. The younger though is a serious runner. Not my favorite president, but I suspect he's close to Obama in terms of being in shape.
I believe that W gave up running because of his knees and took up biking. I really don't think Obama is a very good athlete or even a good enough basketball player to have played DIII. He looks really stiff when playing basketball. He reminds me of the grad students I would see who were more athletic than his peers, but never really played enough basketball growing up to not look a little bit awkward. Probably didn't help he was living in Indonesia at the age when most kids pick up sports.
But Obama is in fine shape. And I used to have friends in Chicago who worked out at the same time as Michelle, and they said she is ridiculous shape.
Michelle Obama is in fabulous shape.... I mean - she's 48 fer chrissakes and I think she could pass for a woman in her 30s just fine if she dressed the part.
Every time she wears a sleeveless dress, her guns look better than those on most women in their 20s.
Michelle Obama is in fabulous shape..
Pierce was a drunk, right? He died of cirrhosis of the liver, anyway, so I'm assuming he's a serious contender for least athletic President.
Also, how has no one bet on Nixon yet? In a fight to the death, I'm probably betting on Nixon. He'll nuke you from space.
