1. No, just 44th.

Same president.

4x44=176 and the country is older than that.

3. Grover Cleaveland

Only President who has ever been two different numbers was Grover Cleaveland because he was elected to two non-consecutive terms.

6. It think because there is no break in his Presidency he is the 44th

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerry_Brown Jerry Brown has a break as Governor so he is the 34th and 39th Governor of California.

7. Grover Cleveland

Was #22 and #24 because he had 2 non-consecutive terms. Otherwise each president only gets 1 number.

9. He remains 44.

The unwritten rule is that when an administration is reelected, with the commander-in-chief intact, the numerology remains the same. That's why we only have 44 presidents up until this point, and not 56. That's why FDR is our 32nd president, but not also our 33rd, 34th, and 35th.

Interestingly enough, even though Obama is our 44th president, 43 PEOPLE have been president. That's because big fat stupid Grover Cleveland, elected non-consecutively, is our 22nd AND 24th president. Jerk.

13. I love that Clinton was 42.

Which is, of course the answer to life, the universe and everything.

16. Another Grover Cleveland useless trivia fact

The Baby Ruth candy bar was named after his daughter, who was born during his presidency (can't remember which one) after he married the much younger Frances Folsom. Not named for Babe Ruth.
