We often tell our kids that anyone in the US can grow up to become the president.  There are a few rules, however.

  • The person must be a natural-born citizen of the US
  • He or she must have lived as a permanent resident in the US for at least 14 years
  • The person must be a minimum of 35 years old (John F. Kennedy was our youngest so far at 43 years, 236 days old)
  • The candidate must not have participated in a rebellion against the US and cannot have been impeached by the Senate

 

From start to finish, here are the folks we’re celebrating each year on Presidents Day.
