Did you know that President Calvin Coolidge was kind of awesome?

Coolidge was elected as vice president to Warren G. Harding in 1920. When Harding died in 1923, Coolidge became president and was elected outright in 1924.

He was considered a small government conservative and a man of few words, but these photographs of him are worth thousands.

What other presidents were photographed staring down a cow or holding a tiny kitten? None of them.

Behold, the greatness of the 30th President of the United States.
