Please don't make this a sweethearted answer on how you don't care, as long as they're good.

Based on what you've seen, does it remotely matter?

Lincoln, Johnson, Jefferson, FDR, H.W. Bush, Washignton, Jackson, Reagan, Obama were/are all over 6 foot. I like my POTUSes like that.

Like it or not, fair or unfair; being tall is an advantage in nearly every facet of society. Including politics.

Wasn't Hitler short? I mean if a politician has enough charisma and policies that entice people surely a persons height would come secondary.

Lincoln, Johnson, Jefferson, FDR, H.W. Bush, Washignton, Jackson, Reagan, Obama were/are all over 6 foot. I like my POTUSes like that.

Are they all around 6 ft 2 or are any taller than that?

Well heights is a scary thing if you're not use to jumping off buildings and planes etc.

I think it matters, because nerves can cause hesitation and hesitation can be the cataclysm for death.

Sarcasm.

Napoleon was actually average height for his time. It's a myth that Napoleon was a short man.

Not if you want to fly fighter jets in the Air Force, they actually prefer it if their pilots are under six feet tall so they can fit better in the standard sized cockpit

I know. I read it today. I just wanted to keep riding the popular perception a little bit longer.

I listed them in descending order Lincoln and LBJ were 6' 4". President Obama is 6' 1"

@fuchsia_nightingale: So the frost giants are trying to take over, I knew it. People kept insisting on that Zombie apocalypse nonsense but I just knew in my heart that they were due for a come back.

I think it does, if only a bit, just due to the presence the President creates.
