Newsflash: Obama is a Lefty! Why are so many U.S. Presidents Left-Handed?

Friday, July 11th, 2008

This was the scene at famous Pier 39 in San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf the other day. Barack Obama has a┬ánew T-shirt.

But what’s that, John McCain is left-handed as well? And Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton?

That means four out the last six U.S. presidents be lefties. And, as of next year, the stat will be five out the last seven presidents. That’s 71%, or a rate ten times higher than what you’d expect.
