As we ease into President's Day weekend, I thought it would be fun to do a bit of a holiday content review. This US holiday is often associated more with things like car deal "blowouts" than Presidents. But when it comes to our fearless leaders, what are people really interested in?   Here's a look.

3. Thomas Jefferson

4. John F. Kennedy

5. George W. Bush

6. Franklin D. Roosevelt

7. John Adams

8. Theodore Roosevelt

9. Bill Clinton

10. Andrew Jackson

As you can see, history beats out current events. Notably, Abraham Lincoln was searched for 3 times more often than George W. Bush. Lots of folks seem to be searching on esoteric Presidential items, as well.
