Too cool!!!!

I was surfing Wikipedia, and thought it would be neat to look up my birthday, November 6th, 1984.
For those of you that don't know, that is the day that Reagan was elected. I knew that, but as I was scanning the list of events on that day, I noticed several other presidential elections were on that day, which is no surprise considering the time of year.

1860 - Abraham Lincoln
1888 - Benjamin Harrison
1900 - William McKinley
1928 - Herbert Hoover
1956 - Dwight D. Eisenhower
1984 - Ronald Reagan

Notice anything about the list? EVERY president that was elected on my birthday was REPUBLICAN!

I am starting to like my birthday even more!!!
