During 82 of the 170 years of the American Presidency, the occupant of the White House has been a former governor of one of the states in the Union. As the elections of 1960 approach, there is much public discussion of the possible candidacy of a number of governors and even one or two former governors. The author of this articlde examines the chances that the next President will be elected from this group.
