Happy President's Day

Is anyone else slightly disturbed that Margaret Spellings, the secretary of education, doesn't know how many presidents there have been?

From her statement on ed.gov:

Today, we honor the 43 citizens who have held the title of President of the United States. We celebrate their commitment and dedication. We cherish their visions for the great promise of this nation. And we remember the trials each of them faced in office.


There have been 42, not 43, presidents. Cleveland served two discontinuous terms.

Perhaps Spellings should be regularly tested to ensure that she is learning.
