The President of the United States of America is the single head of the government of the United States. The person who serves this role must be elected by the citizens of the United States. The person in the role is the commander of the armed forces, can grant reprieves and pardons to citizens that were convicted on federal crimes. They can also appoint ambassadors, cabinet officials and Supreme Court justices. In order to be eligible to be President you must be a natural born citizen, thirty-five years of age or older, and must be a resident of the U.S. for at least fourteen years. The only President to be the undisputed winner was George Washington. He was unanimously elected. It is probably because he was not part of any political party. Did you know that a former U.S. President held the role of hangman twice when he (Grover Cleveland) served as a sheriff? Cleveland was also the only one to be elected to nonconsecutive terms, so far. Did you know that Andrew Johnson was a tailor previous to holding office? He only wore suits that he made. Jimmy Carter is the only President to go on the record as having sighted a UFO, maybe that's why he wasn't asked back? John Tyler had 15 children, now that's a busy President.
