The most important thing to remember about Dwight D. Eisenhower is that he was our baldest president (and the last bald man to be elected president). He was a practical guy who, although lacking in "political" experience, had enough expertese as a military leader to be an effective president. Old-timers fondly remember his two terms as being peaceful, despite the high degree of civil unrest in America (civil rights were low on his priority list) and the ever escalating threat of nuclear destruction by the commies. Indeed, many look back to these "simpler" days, when you could buy a house for a nickel and teenagers adorned their bedrooms with posters of then Vice-President Richard Nixon (hubba-hubba). Ike usually ranks pretty high on those stupid presidential rankings lists...good for him.
Bonus points go to anyone that can name the Simpsons episode that I referenced at the very beginning of this video.
