Have you or anyone you know ever met a president? Which one?

I don't know anyone, but did go to a rally when Clinton did his Whistle Stop Tour so I saw him from afar.

  • I've seen Obama from a distance, but not close enough to say hi. A lot of people here have since he campaigned so much and then came back for town hall.

  • No but Obama flew over my house a few days ago in a helicopter. We brought the kids outside to see the 6 military helecopters go by. He spoke 5 minutes from my house but we could not get tickets.

  • For obvious reasons I will keep myself ANON!


    I have met George Bush Sr., and GWB (before he was president) several times. I was the Nanny for Nancy Bush Ellis' grandchildren (sister of George senior) for 8 years, which included watching the grandchildren on several occasions at the Bush family compound in Kennebunkport, Maine among other private family retreats.  I'm telling you now, there's nothing like being 18-25 years old and being "patted down" by incredibly yummy Secret Service agents! LOL


    I met the parents (father is one of Nancy's sons) of the children I watched when I was a Lifeguard at The Country Club, in Brookline Ma. It is also where I met MANY descendants of famous Boston "blue-bloods."  The Ellis' attended my wedding, and I recieved a lovely handwritten letter from George and Barbara Bush for my wedding--which I had framed.

  • I'm a distant cousin of Nixon- my grandmother knew him.

    I have a friend who flew President Ford around a few times just before his death.
