    "Old Hickory" - Andrew Jackson
    ~Given to him by his soldiers for being "as tough as an old hickory."

    "Honest Abe"- Abraham Lincoln
    ~For always being straightforward and honest.

    "Rutherfraud" - Rutherford B Hayes
    ~Due to the disputed results of the 1876 election, many Democrats considered him to illegitimately be president.

    "Silent Cal" -Calvin Coolidge
    ~Because he was a man of few words.

    "Ike"- Dwight D Eisenhower
    ~Campaign slogan. Nickname as child.

    "Tricky Dick"- Richard Nixon
    ~For the democratic party ad, criticizing his record by saying "Look at Tricky Dick Nixon's Republican record."

    "The Great Communicator"- Ronald Reagan
    ~For his exceptional ability to articulate.

    "Slick Willie"- Bill Clinton
    ~For his ability to talk his way out of a mess...perhaps for other reasons too lol

    "Dubya"- George W Bush
    ~Texas pronunciation of his name
    I Like Ike.

    Honest Abe is probably not very accurate. But it is very well know.
