I posted that as a joke of course, but it got me thinking ( never a good thing ) about titles and how we address people, you know our founders disagreed on how the president should be addressed.<quoted text>
Why would Diana Ross rule on that?:)
"The 1787 Constitution of the United States did not specify the manner of address for the chief executive. When George Washington was sworn in as the first President of the United States in 1789, he initially used the style, "His High Mightiness, the President of the United States and Protector of their Liberties," a title elaborated by the Joint Congressional Committee on titles over the course of a month. Critics charged that it smacked of monarchy. Washington consented to the demands of James Madison and the United States House of Representatives that the title be altered to "Mr. President." The first Vice President of the United States and the second President, John Adams, felt the title showed too little deference and lacked prestige, but he was unsuccessful in replacing it."
Off topic... but interesting anyway
