Five out of the last seven US presidents were left-handed. Will the ‘lefties’ beat the ‘righties’ again?
During the past 40 years five out of 7 US presidential elections were won by ‘lefties’ – including: Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton & Barack Obama; during the past 4 decades there were only two right-handed US presidents: Jimmy Carter & George W. Bush were ‘righties’! In 1992 and 1996 all three presidential nomenies were ‘lefties’.
What will the 2012 election bring: will the ‘lefties’ (Barack Obama) beat the ‘righties’ (Mitt Romney) again?
Your opinion is welcome…

• President: 1977-1981;
Earlier this year TIME presented a beautiful hand photo essay of the last 9 US presidents. US Palm reader Robin Gile presented a hand analysis for each president – without knowing that it was Jimmy Carter’s hand, this is how Robin Gile described Jimmy Carter’s hand:
“This man is tough, rigid, unyielding and stubborn,” Gile says. “The ability to compromise doesn’t appear to be a strong aspect in this hand. He’s got the gift of intuition, but he’s not the most intuitive of this set. He’s aware of the environment around him, but that sensitivity to it doesn’t make him change course. I would say he’s controlling and lacks flexibility.”

Earlier this year TIME presented a photo essay of the hands of the last 9 US presidents – starting from Lyndon Johson to Barack Obama. On top of the photo essay, they asked hand expert palm reader Robin Gile to assess the palms of the presidents – without knowing which hand belonged to which president!
But now some more advanced palm readings materials are available in a new article, titled:
This article included e.g.:
- an advanced presidential photo session: ’60 presidential hands’;
- an analysis of the most prominent characteristics in the hands of each president;
- plus an analysis of the most common hand characteristics of the 10 performers of the ‘most wanted job’ in the world!
Interestingly, the result of the analysis indicates that quite a few of these ‘presidential men’ appear to have a rather remarkable characteristic in their ‘head line’ (in the world of palmistry a.k.a. the ‘line of head’ or ‘headline’):
The Sydney Line
The Sydney line is known as a rather unusual long palmar ‘head line’ (which is usually found in less than 5% of normal populations).
The presidential photos indicate that the following 4 presidents have this unusual hand characteristic: George H.W. Bush (both hands), Jimmy Carter (both hands), Gerald Ford (both hands), and Richard Nixon (right hand only).
The double head line
The ‘double head line’ is another unusual palmar characteristic (which is also found in less than 5% of normal populations).
The presidential photos indicate that both Bill Clinton (left hand) & John F. Kennedy (right hand) have the ‘double head line’.
Other interesting hand characteristics
The photo research also revealed that 50% of the presidents appear to have the combination of a long ring finger (a.k.a. the ‘sun’ finger) AND a strong, long sun line (a vertical palmar line below the ring finger).
Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford, and Lyndon Johnson all have/had this ‘sunny’ combination in their dominant hand!
Other frequently observed hand characteristics are: a low ’2D:4D digit ratio’, and a long pinky finger.
