I liked Ike.

President Eisenhower took office when I was one year old and served until I was nine. I had the deepest respect and greatest awe for him that a little country girl could muster.
I remember telling my brother once that I wished we had television just so I could see the President.
Dwight was five years older than me and more sophisticated. He didn't share my reverence. "What would be so great about that?" he asked. His scorn shocked me!
I don't remember my reply, but I'm sure I didn't explain myself well. Even 50 years later, it's hard to explain the position of high honor that President Eisenhower held in my little heart and mind.
