While FDR was the last native New Yorker, Nixon definitely lived in New York before running for president. He became a partner of the now defunct Mudge, Rose law firm along with his future Attorney General John Mitchell and lived on Park Avenue.

This is a NY quiz. Are NJ and CT members chopped liver? And it's "fewer" typos.

As your New Year's resolution, maybe you would like to make "fewer" typos in the New Year and not "less" typos!

"Michigander"--or as Brian put it, Mishuganer--sounds kinda gender-specific to me. Shouldn't a woman from Michigan be called a Michigoose--or as Brian might put it, Mishigoss?

Sorry for being out of context, but i would just like to mention in case it is discussed: for all the talk of the great democratic hope being extinguished with Bhutto, does not 'appointing' her son as successor seem a bit undemocratic? nepotism, corruption, these are not great values.
