About This Quiz

US Presidents reflect the ages they came from. Each one embodied certain qualities indicative of their time and held beliefs shared by at least the majority of the electoral college. There was a time when parties did not hold primaries, and the presidents were much more peculiar than the general population because they would be chosen not by the general population, but by the political elite of their party.

Some presidents came from political dynasties, bred for power like the winners of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Others had to fight their way into the political elite by having sharper elbows and greater determination than all their peers. All presidents were at some point put to the test. When their failings became apparent, their strengths rose to the fore, and the world got to see what they were really made of.

Of course, not all Presidents are equal, some forgotten by all but the biggest politics geeks. The most interesting presidents were the most human, combining tremendous talents and terrible frailties. These men shaped the history of the nation and the history of the world. 

If they could do that while saddled with all their foibles, just imagine what a person free of those could do. You possess certain qualities in common with these figures, but which one are you most like?
