    For me, it is “J. Edgar Hoover” That is the word association I have. Not that I was ever alive, just a student of history and that is the pop I get. Somehow they are connected in my mind.

    Actually it does. I think it was one of the smartest and most prescient statements ever made by a President. I remembered it because that whole Eisenhower leaving, Kennedy coming in bit was a big deal in my house and got lots of attention (my father was county campaign manager for JFK). Ike's comments were considered a little scandalous at the time. I will admit that what I always remember was his warning us about the MIC. I looked up the exact words. Ike and Hoover are definitely connected. Eisenhower was very intimidated by Hoover and McCarthy and would have loved to see both disappear.

    It's the first thing that pops into my head when you mention the name Eisenhower.

    But I think it was one of the more important things he said.

    Actually that is a very famous Eisenhower quote. Probably the most important statement uttered by a US President in a hundred years. To bad it gets ignored to this day. .

    One of my favs was by old 'give-em-hell' Harry, when he said," I hate to send these boys abroad, when they could be out finding one on their own."
