Thought you learned a lot in all those history classes? The dates of the Civil War, insights into Nixon's relationship with China, blah blah blah. Fine. But do you really know your history makers? Can you comprehend how these men and women made young hearts swoon? Why their rhetoric and deeds led to fruitless crushes and 8x10 posters in high school lockers?

We here at OOZE, in the continuing quest for journalistic integrity, dug up a huge, moldy stack of periodicals from a time long past (even going to microfiche for some of the Old Testament stuff) in order to find out just how- HOT -these newsmakers were in their day. You'll be surprised at the data we dug up.
