President's Day Fun: Who is Your Favorite Commander-in-Chief?

Local librarian Pat Humphreys votes for Teddy Roosevelt.

Monday's holiday is intended to celebrate George Washington's—and, more recently, Abraham Lincoln's—birthday.

But since it's also widely known as President's Day, Patch is asking local folks to weigh in on the greatest commanders-in-chief.

"I like Teddy Roosevelt," Pat Humphreys, the teen reference librarian at the Katonah Village Library, said of the nation's 26th president. "He had this flamboyant character, he was really out there."

Humphreys' admiration for Roosevelt goes beyond his charisma. He wasn't "just full of hot air," she said, referring to his impact on the US National Park System.

"I have to say thank you for that," she told Patch.

Whether you agree with Humphreys, or have a different opinion when it comes to a favorite president, we're hoping you'll weigh in, Bedford and Katonah residents. Share your pick in the attached comments section.

One of our Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/BedfordKatonahPatch?ref=hl) fans said she and her husband are fans of Lincoln. Other favorites?

I would have to say Barack Obama is my fav. He's truly inspiring. He has proved to the world that literally anyone can be president of this country. You can be stoned all through high school, rub elbows with fringe characters in college, have your grades scrubbed from history, have a domestic terrorist write your TWO auto-biographies (in your 30s) never hold a real job --and STILL sneak into the oval office. And then win a Nobel prize for absolutely no reason. Amazing stuff! Happy President's Day.
