No United States president was born in, lived in, died in or is buried in Harford County, but many of them, from George Washington to Barack Obama, crisscrossed our county during their lifetimes, either before, during or after their presidencies.
After eight years of the most fashion-forward woman in Washington wearing fit-and-flare dresses, traditional ladylike silhouettes appear to be taking a back seat to pantsuits and other clothing akin to the masculine contour
How can we ignore the trail of scandals following
While opinions vary on which of our 44 presidents told the most or biggest lies, LBJ and Richard Nixon — from the Vietnam war to Watergate — usually rank pretty high. In more recent history, Bill Clinton, (no "sexual relations with that woman") and Ronald Reagan (Iran-Contra) also rate right up there. But nothing matches the current presidential campaign for its lies. And ironically, it is the candidate who has called others liars with abandon who amounts to the biggest liar of all:

The FBI director's letter to Congress adds no facts but plenty of innuendo to the Clinton email story, violating long-standing policies to keep law enforcement out of politics.
With the campaign-shaking news last week that the FBI is going back down the rabbit hole of Hillary Clinton emails as the result of an unrelated investigation
Maryland's independent voters are the fastest growing political bloc in the state, a trend expected to accelerate after a polarizing contest between the two most unpopular presidential candidates in history.
Independent write-in candidate for president Evan McMullin has virtually no chance of winning the election on Nov. 8, but he does have a shot at becoming president by the end of December.
Few can name a favorite moment shared with a U.S. president, yet White House correspondent April Ryan has at least three — one for Bill Clinton, one for George W. Bush, and one for Barack Obama.
The Aegis weighs in on the 2016 presidential election and, for what seems to be an eternity, won't endorse either candidate, and we explain why.
More than 200 people came out for the first hour on the first day of early voting in Harford County Thursday. People were eager to vote, but no so eager to say who they voted for, the result of a divisive national election.
Early voting began at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 27 in Prince George's County. Residents share their thoughts on the 2016 presidential election.
The Democratic National Committee's party platform promises "to cut the red tape that holds back small businesses and entrepreneurs." Unfortunately, what I am seeing from candidates is more of the same bad policies that strangle business in red tape and taxes.

Two high-profile political events of the last week provided an unintended present from Donald Trump to his rival for the presidential nomination, Hillary Clinton. First in their final debate Wednesday in Las Vegas, and then the next night at the Al Smith charity dinner in New York, Mr. Trump's behavior gave Ms. Clinton venues in which she displayed her superior political skills, knowledge and temperament.

Eda Mahan has been voting for president for more than 70 years. She cast her first ballot in 1944 — she helped Franklin Roosevelt win his fourth term. But as familiar as the quadrennial ritual has become, this year's election will be different.
Republican elected officials in Harford County support Donald Trump for president because he is a political outsider, has a record of business success and is the only viable alternative to Democrat Hillary Clinton, despite nagging concerns about his brash statements. In other words, for many of him he's the default to a Clinton presidency that one state senator says would be disaster.
Some of the students were excited to cast their ballots, while others were deciding to skip the election day frenzy. Students were also a mix when it came to the candidates- some were staunchly voting for Trump or Hillary, whereas others were undecided but almost begrudgingly leaning toward a candidate.
