"Light" Presidents

The blog at the Clinton School of Public Service has a nice post commemorating former Reagan aide Mike Deaver who died Saturday. Most interesting in the post is the discussion about Deaver's theory on what he called "light presidents."

"In the last few years, I got to know him and I loved his stories. One, in particular, stands out. Mike believed the “light” presidents were the most successful ones. By “light,” he meant those who enjoyed working in the oval office with its bountiful natural light. He said John Kennedy, Reagan and Bill Clinton were “light” presidents and that he admired them all, political differences not withstanding."

If you share Deaver's "light" presidents theory you can pick up a Reagan T-shirt, Clinton T-shirt, or JFK T-shirt.
