If Coolidge were a stock, he'd be a buy.
The experts have historically ranked Coolidge in the bottom quartile or bottom half of all presidents.

That means 58 countries have more women than we do in percentage wise.
That doesn't mean that the top fifteen institutions in the ranking somehow don't belong there at all. But what is the difference between number two and number eight in any meaningful sense?
