Teddy Roosevelt is like the early 1900s equivalent of Chuck Norris. I wouldn't be surprised if he roundhouse kicked the would-be assassin in the face.

Is Boardwalk that street in Montreal with all the stippers and sex shops? That would rock.

Teddy was the bomb... youngest president yet. But here is my favorite president/death story.

William Henry Harrison - President from March 4, 1841 to April 4, 1841

"The Thirty-Day President"

Harrison arrived in Washington to be sworn into office on March 4, 1841, which happened to be an extremely cold and windy day. Against his advisors wishes, he insisted not only on speaking in the cold without his overcoat, but he actually went on to give the longest inaugural address in Presidential history -- over two hours. It is believed that because of this, he caught a cold shortly after which quickly developed into pneumonia (of course we all know that cold weather doesn't cause colds, per se, but rather viruses; of course Mr. Harrison was considerably more susceptable to viruses after two hours in the cold weather without a coat.)

Harrison died just 32 days later, much to the disappointment of the Whigs (my all-time favorite political party). The shortest term of any president to this day.
