president's day, 2011 - VIDEO

Once upon a time, February 21st was the celebration of George Washington's birthday.
So it's probably not such a coincidence that on February 21st, 1885, the Washington Monument was dedicated. At 555 feet, it was the tallest structure in the world and today must, by D.C. law, remain the tallest building in the capital.

Anyway, now the day is dedicated to all our Presidents.
(as if they all deserved it)
So what I've done here is a short montage of all the "official" Presidential portraits so far with a little music behind it.
You might be thinking I used "Hail to the Chief" in the clip
(it would make perfect sense after all) but I didn't for a couple of reasons. First off, it's not long enough, it's not a particularly good tune and marching music drives me up a tree. So I found something just as patriotic, much more interesting and a better representation of my left of center political views.

Enjoy. . .
