More signs. In response to a column in the Post last year saying that the "tealeaves" were pointing to a Bush win, I wrote a letter to the editor suggesting otherwise. Among the signs suggesting that Bush will be a one-termer just like Poppy: no president with a last name starting with B (James Buchanan or George Bush Sr.) has won re-election. The only other father and son to be President, John and John Quincy Adams, lost their re-election bids. "And last and most important," I wrote, "all Presidents who lost the popular vote (John Quincy Adams, Rutherford B. Hayes and Benjamin Harrison) were ousted after one term. Adams gained the nickname ‘Old Man Eloquence’, Harrison was known as the ‘Human Iceberg’ and Hayes was known to critics as ‘His Fraudulency.’ The tealeaves say that George Bush is neither eloquent nor an iceberg. But they do say something else."
