Were they still in office?

Because from what I remember, Wilson was the first sitting president to meet with the Pope...

If it's actually FORMER Presidents... it's who was out of office at the time and still alive...
No, this president was not in office yet.

Ok fine.

The answer is Theodore Roosevelt. He was on vacation in Europe as a boy and on Christmas Day he kissed the Pope's Ring.

Which president was willing to resign if he lost relection?

Wilson?

Yep. Wilson, being a (evil?) genius, thought that the wait between Election Day and Inaugiration Day was too long, so he was going to appoint Hughes as Secretary of State, then he and his VP would resign immediatly, making Hughes president earlier.

Bump: Wouldn't that have made the Speaker president, or did that come about with the 25th Amendment?

Nobody, as all of them are (at the very least) related to George Washington.

If you read the link, you'd find that one of them isn't related to the others. Not giving that away.

How are you defining 'related'?  Is marriage-but-not-blood included?

And while the link I posted doesn't in fact provide any connection between Gerald Ford and Washington, Ford was still related to at least five others.

Since of of the presidents are related, is there a conspiracy?

It was Ford, but then I found out that it turns out all of them are related.

Ok then, new question, it's eaiser:

Only 5 of the first 18 presidents never owned slaves. Who were they?

I would not list being related as having a relative that married someone related to the person, i.e. Washington, unless that person was a direct ancestor.

Obama and Truman, for example, have a direct ancestor in common.  If your sister married someone related to Washington, that doesn't make you related to Washington.

Marty did, Jimmy didn't:  http://home.nas.com/lopresti/ps.htm

This should be easy.  Who was the then former president who basically destroyed his legacy with one speech on the 4th of July?  And why?
