Recently my aunt passed away at age 74 years, 77 days. It didn't take long to confirm that she was older than 26 US Presidents got (counting Grover Cleveland twice of course). The last she passed was Millard Fillmore. She once made a crude remark about his birthplace. Next ahead was James Buchanan, but 3 years off. Those 2 ran against each other in 1856. How strange it is that they're still linked in that strange category after 146 years. I wrote about that election long ago, before Carter broke Hoover's record for longest Presidential retirement. You see Carter, Hoover, Ford, John Adams and Bush Sr. had the longest post-presidencies, and every one of them wanted their post-presidencies to be 4 years shorter. Next on the list at 21 years are Fillmore and Van Buren. Those 2 wanted much shorter Post-presidencies. Van Buren tried to return to the Presidency in 1848 and Fillmore in 1856. If they had succeeded Van Buren's retirement would have been only 9 years and Fillmore's 13. Then I noticed that Clinton just broke Madison's record in the category of Presidents who didn't want another term.
