For Americans, Saturday, February 22 was George Washington's traditional birthday.  It kind of slipped past me, I'm ashamed to say, because we now celebrate "President's Day"--combining his birthday with Abraham Lincoln's.


I think George Washington was our greatest president ever--not because he was the first, but because of the man he was.  After fighting the Revolution, some people wanted to make him our King.  But, he said in effect, "Weren't you paying any attention?  What do you think we were fighting for?!"  He refused to be glorified too much, and he overcame a lot of obstacles to succeed as he did.  Read Washington's Secret War.


We have had several great US Presidents, but I think he was the greatest of them all!

I totally agree with you! It takes a brave man to deny that power.

Or as the Klingons would say, "I lift my ghoptu to President Washington!"

That's an interesting question:  What would have happened if Washington would have been killed during the Revolution?
