Months later, Ford would admit to smoking crack (once, in one of his “drunken stupors”).

Grover Cleveland served as America’s 22nd President before being narrowly defeated for re-election by Benjamin Harrison in 1888. But the undeterred Cleveland roared back four years later, winning the 1892 election for his second term in the White House. If the American people can give a president a second chance, don’t you think a gently-used […]

Outside of Black Friday, there may be no bigger shopping day than the often-overlooked, unassuming Presidents’ Day. Sure, we can spend the day honoring Washington, Lincoln, and the rest of the crew — or we can just celebrate by embracing good old fashion American capitalism. Hewlett Packard knows which way you want to go. The […]
