David and Ida Eisenhower, Parents of President Dwight Eisenhower

With Barack Obama doing so well in the primaries, we are starting to wonder what it would be like to have a Black President and a Black First Lady in the White House.  Well, they may not be the first!

The picture above is of David and Ida Eisenhower, the parents of President Dwight D. Eisenhower.  Ida was rumored to have Black ancestry.  Eisenhower, along with 5 other US Presidents are rumored to have been Black…Andrew Jackson, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Warren Harding, and Calvin Coolidge.  [Pittsburg Post Gazette

Not that you can always tell someone’s race by how they look, but based on the photo, Ida sure does look like a Black Superwoman to me!
