With Barack Obama’s long road to keeping the White House finally over, let’s cast an eye back and explore the truly great presidents of history.

Not only is he unsettlingly charismatic he has also just declared (finally) that he is in favour of same sex marriage, effectively kicking all his Republican opponents in their rigidly conservative/homophobic nuts. TAKE THAT TO YO’ TEA PARTY, NEWT.
