More presidential trivia


By my reckoning, the last time that successive US presidential elections have been won by different Democrats was Kennedy and Johnson in 1960 and 1964; the previous time was Franklin Pierce and James Buchanan in 1852 and 1856.

(The first time: Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren - 1832 and 1836.)
