List of presidents of the United States

The president of the United States is the head of state and head of government of the United States, indirectly elected to a 4-year term by the people through the Electoral College. The officeholder leads the executive branch of the federal government and is the commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces. Since the office was established in 1789, 44 men have served as president; the first, George Washington, won a unanimous vote of the Electoral College. Grover Cleveland served two non-consecutive terms in office and is therefore counted as the 22nd and 24th president of the United States. There are four living former presidents; the most recent former president to die was George H. W. Bush, on November 30, 2018; the presidency of William Henry Harrison, who died 31 days after taking office in 1841, was the shortest in American history. Franklin D. Roosevelt served the longest, over twelve years, before dying early in his fourth term in 1945, he is the only U. S. president to have served more than two terms.

Since the ratification of the Twenty-second Amendment to the United States Constitution in 1951, no person may be elected president more than twice and no one who has served more than two years of a term to which someone else was elected may be elected more than once. Of those who have served as the nation's president, four died in office of natural causes, four were assassinated, one resigned. John Tyler was the first vice president to assume the presidency during a presidential term, set the precedent that a vice president who does so becomes the functioning president with his presidency, as opposed to a caretaker president; the Twenty-fifth Amendment to the Constitution put Tyler's precedent into law in 1967. It established a mechanism by which an intra-term vacancy in the vice presidency could be filled. Richard Nixon was the first president to fill a vacancy under this provision when he selected Gerald Ford for the office following Spiro Agnew's resignation in 1973; the following year, Ford became the second to do so when he chose Nelson Rockefeller to succeed him after he acceded to the presidency.

As no mechanism existed for filling an intra-term vacancy in the vice presidency before 1967, the office was left vacant until filled through the next ensuing presidential election and subsequent inauguration. Throughout most of its history, American politics has been dominated by political parties; the Constitution is silent on the issue of political parties, at the time it came into force in 1789, there were no parties. Soon after the 1st Congress convened, factions began rallying around dominant Washington administration officials, such as Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson. Concerned about the capacity of political parties to destroy the fragile unity holding the nation together, Washington remained unaffiliated with any political faction or party throughout his eight-year presidency, he was, remains, the only U. S. president never affiliated with a political party. Three presidents held another U. S. federal office after serving as president. Two presidents campaigned unsuccessfully for other U.

S. state or federal elective offices after serving as president. Many presidents have campaigned unsuccessfully for another term as president. Five did so after a gap of at least one term since they served: Acting president of the United States Founding Fathers of the United States List of presidents of the Continental Congress List of vice presidents of the United States Whitehouse.gov: The Presidents Hauenstein Center | Presidential Leadership Studies at Grand Valley State University
