Well, if you're speaking figuratively -- all of them. It's part of a president's job to drum up support and enthusiasm for their latest war, policy, agenda, or what-have-you. Literally, however, four of our country's leaders were former cheerleaders. George W. Bush wielded his megaphone as head cheerleader at Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts. Ronald Reagan rallied the crowds at Eureka College in Illinois. Dwight D. Eisenhower got them fired up at West Point Academy. And Franklin D. Roosevelt shouted from the sidelines at Harvard. While not presidents, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, former Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott, and Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran are former cheerleaders as well. Why so many political heavyweights on the list? <a href="http://www.cheerhome. more
