Presidential Data Point

41bushSorry I missed posting this one a week and a half ago: As of October 11, 2017, George H.W. Bush has surpassed Ronald Reagan as the second-longest-lived President. Born on June 12, 1924, Bush broke Reagan’s record of 93 years, 120 days (which was the longest any President had lived, until Gerald Ford broke his record in 2006). Bush is poised to become the longest-lived President on November 25, 2017 (currently, that record belongs to Gerald Ford: 93 years, 166 days).

Jimmy Carter—the longest-retired President—is 111 days younger than Bush.
