A Picture is Worth 1000 Words

I still well remember the Air Florida crash in the Potomac River my senior year of high school (I had to walk home in the snow because the late buses were cancelled).  Ronald Reagan thought he was such a hero that he highlighted his jumping in the Potomac to rescue plane victims to illustrate a point he was making in his State of the Union speech.  Every president has used the technique since then and here you can see who has been chosen each time along with their picture.
