1. Yeppers

And my great frustration this election was the Right and MSM Media trying to paint President Obama as Jimmy Carter. Love Jimmy Carter. He got hoodwinked by Reagan.

But this election was more like 1936 - from the weaknesses in the economy to the recent broad sweeping social program (it was SS back then) - it always looked like Franklin Part II to me.

7. Eisenhower wasn't exactly "transformational"...

All he did was to maintain the status quo.

9. not sure about that

Eisenhower sent troops into Little Rock, AR to integrate the schools--to ease the strain on the bigots he said it was to prevent anarchy----he was transformational because he saw the good of black troops during WW2----I am not being confrontational here -----if Eisenhower was a progressive ---it is something for the Republicans to look at today----it is ok to be good-----not all of the right wing understands-----Rachel Madow says her politics are just like Eisenhower

8. I think you need to add William McKinley

1896 (51.02%) & 1900 (51.64%)

(Andrew Jackson also - but he's a bit beyond your 120 year threshold)
