Dubya because he's a fun guy.

Bill Clinton because I like to eat donuts after a ride.

Uncle Pete!

After listening to the RNC last night (gotta keep an open mind) I'd stick a pump in Fred Thompson's spokes too. I would just shoulder check Joe Leiberman, into a ditch.

Wow, this got political quick. I'm going to stay out of it.

Now, anyone want to buy a pair of slightly used Sidi's?

That would give him the opportunity to declare: "Wow, we are making good progress, the air is very clean here!"

Honestly, I wouldn't mind doing an MTB ride with GWB. I've read that he's pretty fast.
Other than Kerry, are any other politicians serious cyclists?

What I mean is that I don't consider one's politics for something as apolitical as a bike ride. I get enough politics everywhere else in life, and welcome relief from it in lists such as this one.

Why would I care about what your politics are, if we're just going to roll out on some roads for a while? I don't have political litmus tests for folks in general, but I do prize character and integrity regardless of whether it is "red" or "blue".

Congressman Earl Blumenaur (D - OR) owns seven bikes and commutes in the rain.

And of course it's safe to say that Patrick McHenry (R - NC) isn't a serious cyclist.

Adlai E. Stevenson, Dwight D. Eisenhower, or Abraham Lincoln.. Guess, we'd not have that option with FDR. Among the living. Lance Armstrong.. Sooner or later he will be in the Congress. ^... Blumenaur. Definitely. But, prefer he'd come out and we'd all do Blue Ridge Parkway.. I'm more a rural rider.
