Jeanine Pirro is absolutely beautiful. I don't like her politics, but I've always been attracted to her...mainly because she looks like my wife.

I just can't think of anything good to say about Dick Cheney.

I also give kudos to Bush for fighting AIDS, as well as for refraining from making public political statements since out of office.

And I can think of something good to say about Cheney. There have been no additional hunting accidents with him in several years.

Don't know them personally, but both GWB and Obama seem like good husbands and fathers.

Ambidextrous: Garfield (was known to write with both his left hand and right hand at the same time as a party trick to amuse friends).

I suspect the rest are largely unknown, or if they were left-handed, were probably forced to switch at a young age and nobody is aware of that.
Thanks! My mother-in-law went to Catholic school, and they tried to force her to write with her right hand. I never understood that. I'm pretty sure Reagan, Ford, Truman, and Hoover weren't Catholic, so I guess it wasn't just them who didn't like it. Maybe just Christians in general? I wonder if Jewish left-handers were ever forced to write with their right hand. I assume it was religious in nature, but maybe I'm wrong.

Bill Clinton is probably great at parties. (Provided your, wife, mother or daughters are not in attendance.)
I've known several people who met Clinton personally, and no matter their political persuasion or what they thought of him, they ALL said he was amazingly charismatic and smart as a whip.

I don't really think it was a 'Christian' mindset, just a mindset in general of 'right handed is right, left handed is wrong'. I seem to recall reading many cultures have a problem with lefthandedness. My mother and two of her brothers were left-handed, and went to public school. A teacher forced my mother to switch to her right hand, my uncles were left alone.

All this rap about Ford, yet he wrote with his left hand. Here is a picture:
