The Mount Rushmore Of Well-Groomed Presidents

 The Mount Rushmore Of Well Groomed PresidentsWith the perfect storm of today being President’s Day and the recent sports media frenzy over Lebron James’ assertion that he’s on the Mt. Rushmore of all-time NBA stars — we fancied now the ideal time to announce Grooming Lounge’s Mount Rushmore of the best-groomed Commander in Chiefs in history.  Mind you, “great grooming” to us goes beyond just a nicely coiffed head of hair and a solid shave. It instead extends to include general handsomeness, personality, sense of style,  humor and other stuff we have a hard time explaining (but you know the gents who have it).  Anyway, with out further adieu, or even a request from anyone, here’s our big four:

- JAMES POLK: Perhaps the coolest head of presidential hair to date.

- BILL CLINTON: No matter what he did (or didn’t do), you probably want to have a drink with him.

- RONALD REAGAN: Guy was a President, Sportscaster and Hollywood star.  Any questions?

- JOHN F. KENNEDY: Style would work in any and every decade (we even think in the Jetsons’ era).

Stay tuned next week for our “Mount Rushmore of Worst Presidential Teeth.”
