Best line of the night: When one of the kids managed to get all the Presidents in order, one of his group's members said: "Sure, he knows his Presidents...but that doesn't mean he'll make a good leader. Look at George Bush...he's not even smart and he's been our leader twice." Good stuff. That said, I don't think I could have put those Presidents in order.

I think I heard that line differently.

It sounded like a back-handed compliment to Bush.

The way I heard it was more like, "Sure, he is smart, but that does not mean he would make a good leader. Bush is not very smart but he has been President twice."

In other words, it does not take smarts to be a good leader.

I will see if I can find it at CBS.com.
