If a burial strikes my family as too practical, I'd go for either a viking funeral on one of the Great Lakes or to be sealed up in a tomb with my closest servants and bang-maids so they may wait on my every need in the afterlife.

I think it was Richard Nixon.

It was Bush. Nixon never lost an actual political race (though he lost a race for President of student council) before 1960, and loss only one race after that, 1962.

George Bush, on the other hand, ran for Texas Senator in 1964 and lost. He ran for Congressman in 1966 and won, winning re-election in 1968. In 1970, he ran again for Senate and lost, then was appointed Ambassador to the United Nations, elected RNC Chairman, appointed Envoy to China, and appointed DCI before entering four years of private life in 1977, and being elected Vice-President in 1980.

Therefore, the answer is George HW Bush.

the birth of modern america & onward election Frederick Douglas becomes the 1st African American president of the united states when he wins election to the office in 1892 only 30 years after the height of slavery in the United States. He narrowly wins reelection in 1896 against William Jennings Bryan. Douglas runs again in 1900 and even indicated his interest in a 4th run in 1904 but Grover Cleveland wins the 1900 election.

The last one not to do so in the traditional format (ie as a written report) rather than hold a speech, if that is what you meant, was Big Bill Taft.

EDIT: lol.

Ok, another hint:

The Pope was Pius IX, so this president was alive between 1846 and 1878.

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...
