Because nothing says DC born like naming your baby after a dead white guy
  1. Warren
    (Harding if you must, Elizabeth if you want to let the progressive flag fly— plus she's Native American!)
  2. Wilson
    Yes he was racist but most presidents were and his vision for the League of Nations was inspired
  3. Carter
    Best ex-prez and a great lesson that even the biggest failures don't have to define your legacy
  4. Truman
  5. Delano
    Yes it's a little weird but FDR is so impressive and the Delano family did a lot for the US. Also Delano Israel 😍
  6. Quincy
  7. Hamlin
    Lincoln's more progressive other half
  8. Chester
    "No man ever entered the Presidency so profoundly and widely distrusted as Chester Alan Arthur, and no one ever retired more generally respected."
  9. Adlai
    Not quite a president but he ran 3 times and has some of the most stirring speeches about freedom of thought that I've ever read
  10. Walter or Mondale
    Pro tax reform, economic justice and school desegregation before they were hip. Picked the first female running mate!
