message 1: by Bryn (new)

Bryn Dunham Pretty good list so far despite several that are not presidential biographies


message 2: by Eric (new)

Eric Smith Can the non-presidential biographies be removed? If they can, I think they should be.


message 3: by Doug (new)

Doug Too many of these are about the current President. It is impossible for an adequate biography to be written less than 20-30 years after a President leaves office. No President's campaign biography deserves to be on the list since the person hasn't been President when it was written.
