Nemesis is a little on the touchy feely side. It could be any of a number of things. And Obama's first elected position was as a State Senator.

elected year is simple 2008 (obama)then take 8 and if it doesnt work take 4
Nov 30th, 2009 at 15:41 GMT
Whew. I thought this quiz was going to be just naming the last five presidents. Good quiz
Nov 30th, 2009 at 15:47 GMT
"Nemesis" is indeed far too vague. (Though maybe "Alzheimer's" was a bad guess.) For Clinton, after all, it was really Ken Starr who was his *nemesis*. Slogan/sound bite/concept may have the same problem.
Nov 30th, 2009 at 16:09 GMT
I tried Starr jokingly for Clinton's nemesis. Didn't work. Then I tried something serious, and put down Milosevic, since I guess the conflicts in the Balkans were the biggest military conflicts during Clinton's reign. Then I find out when it's over it was in fact Lewinsky, after all. >_< (Also, wouldn't "Win one for the Gipper" be one of Reagan's famous campaign slogans?)
Nov 30th, 2009 at 16:25 GMT
Thanks, everybody, for the comments. Ken Starr is a better idea than Monica Lewinsky (why didn't I think of that?), and Obama was a State Senator before he was a U.S. Senator. Changes have been made, so thanks for the input! The "slogan" and "nemesis" categories are open to interpretation, as noted. But I think they are fun.
Nov 30th, 2009 at 16:31 GMT
when i put in senate, i got first elected for Obama but not the previous job... dont know abt the diff between State Senator and Senator but u have phrased the two things exactly same, so senate should work for both or none...
Nov 30th, 2009 at 16:39 GMT
Good quiz but allow "Yes we can" without a "!"
Nov 30th, 2009 at 16:52 GMT
for communism you should accept USSR also
Nov 30th, 2009 at 17:57 GMT
Really fun quiz. I normally bomb presidential ones but since all of these were within my lifetime I knew more than I expected.
Nov 30th, 2009 at 20:06 GMT
Thanks for the suggestions! Problems are fixed, I think!
Nov 30th, 2009 at 20:27 GMT
you should accept USSR and you should also accept "dubya the president" or "w the president" since that was one of GWB's slogans.
Nov 30th, 2009 at 20:40 GMT
Wait, you mean "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" wasn't one of Clinton's slogans?
Dec 1st, 2009 at 02:18 GMT
I think "Rush Limbaugh" should be acceptable for Obama's nemesis.
Dec 1st, 2009 at 02:28 GMT
Loved it! I agree that the slogans are a little vague, but other than that, really fun (I'm a little impressed that I knew all the First Ladies' maiden names)

You should accept Compassionate Conservative without the ism.
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 01:37 GMT
Agree with groug, I was about to say the exact same thing. Fun quiz though!
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 01:54 GMT
I love that "Bush" is accepted for Obama's nemesis.
Dec 2nd, 2009 at 22:53 GMT
The nemesis one just doesn't fit. I tried "Oliver North" and "Iran-Contra" for Reagan. In truth, that's not trivia, it's a value judgement. Other than that, good quiz, but you probably shouldn't just take "Attorney" for "attorney general".
Dec 4th, 2009 at 02:06 GMT
I've never made a quiz, so this is a shot in the dark: The nemesis category is a lot of fun, but it's inexact as people noted. Is there any way to make a whole category just a bunch of "bonus" answers?? I only missed 2 of them so it didn't bother me, but without that category, this is front-page material.
Dec 4th, 2009 at 02:20 GMT
great quiz, much harder than i thought it would be!
Dec 4th, 2009 at 17:30 GMT
could you accept "Terrorists!" or "You're gonna die if you don't elect me" for Bush Jr.'s "Famous campaign slogan/sound bite/concept"?
Dec 6th, 2009 at 02:27 GMT
This is treading into political territory, but George W. Bush spent a lot more effort fighting Saddam Hussein than he did Osama bin Laden.
Dec 7th, 2009 at 19:47 GMT
Mission accomplished could be one for Bush II. It wasnt in his favor but you heard it a lot.
Dec 8th, 2009 at 03:32 GMT
I'm not quite sure how Obama's nemesis is the War on Terror when his administration has decreed we're not allowed to say "terrorism" anymore...terrorist attacks are supposedly called "man-made disasters". I would say his nemesis is the bad economy. Well, I personally would say his nemesis is capitalism, but for the purposes of this quiz, he's supposed to be fixing the economy.
Dec 12th, 2009 at 05:46 GMT
The only thing I could come up with for Clinton was "I Feel Your Pain". I liked this quiz.
Dec 12th, 2009 at 14:28 GMT
excellent quiz.. love the collection of not commonly asked questions... the "slogan" category was a little vague... I agree with the "I feel your pain" or "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" for Clinton.... also, how about "Mission Accomplished" for Bush.... A little too open ended to truly be fair.... I dont there is an official accepted answer... with that said, gave u a 5 and nominated this quiz for publication :)
Dec 15th, 2009 at 03:36 GMT
Representative should be acceptable.
Dec 16th, 2009 at 19:05 GMT
I agree Representative should be acceptable too (you take Senator).
Dec 18th, 2009 at 01:00 GMT
Second groug's comment about "compassionate conservative", and I thought "I feel your pain" should be a valid answer for Clinton. (It's at least as valid as "Read my lips" which I got credit for...)
Dec 22nd, 2009 at 07:19 GMT
i couldnt get the slogan for the second bush. tried "uniter" and "dont mess with texas". finally i tried "strategery". no dice.
Dec 27th, 2009 at 21:09 GMT
An interesting idea; good quiz. One for UK PMs would be a fine addition.
Dec 29th, 2009 at 23:23 GMT
Tried "compassionate conservative", "you forgot Poland", and "I'm the decider" for Bush.
Dec 30th, 2009 at 22:31 GMT
You should accept "pretzels" as Bush's nemesis.
Jan 8th, 2010 at 19:34 GMT
Wasn't Ronald Reagan's nemesis senility?
Jan 11th, 2010 at 20:36 GMT
I tried "morning again in America" for Reagan - I must have spelled it wrong. Also must have spelled Massachusetts wrong (which is weird, b/c I just got it right in the "60 second states" quiz). And I can't believe I forgot Michelle Obama
Mar 5th, 2011 at 22:40 GMT
Those born in this country should know the names of the last five presidents. History books do go back as far as 1980. Election years for those who never noticed are always divisible by 4. If you're watching the summer Olympics, February had 29 days and we are going to have a presidential election that November.
Jan 29th, 2012 at 22:14 GMT
For Clinton, "Bridge to the 21st Century" should also work since that was what he used in his 1996 campaign. Also accept compassionate conservative (in addition to conservatism).

@ezois: Wrong. There was no February 29 in 2000.
