What is PeekScore?: PeekScore is a rank from 1 to 10, assigned to every person. The higher someone’s score, the “more important” they are on the web. In calculating your PeekScore and updating it often, PeekYou takes into account your known presence and activity on the Internet, including but not limited to; your blogging, participation in social networks, the number of your friends, followers, or readers, the amount of web content you create, and your prominence in the news. For first time visitors a more in-depth explanation of what the PeekScore is, and how to increase your own, can be found by clicking through here.
Over the past 18 months, consistent with the attentions of the greater world at large, we’ve been routinely keeping you abreast of the PeekScores of the group of folks currently clamoring to be the ruler of the free world. But for a change of pace – amidst all this election year brouhaha – we’ve decided to ask; what of those few whose grand aspirations already took them all the way to the White House (or at least within a heartbeat of all the way)?
Below are the ten men currently walking the Earth who can say “hey, to heck with you, I was and/or am the President and/or the Vice President of these here United States… What have you done?” Per usual, we’re not sizing up their successes or failures as commanders or executives, we’re simply using our PeekScore scale to report on how much of an impact they’ve each made here in cyberspace (you can read a bit more about all of that either above this entry, or by clicking through here).
It will shock no one that our current president tops our list, and it should shock few that his predecessor is essentially tied with him for the top spot. The greatest upset, one might contend, comes in the form of the 45th Vice President beating the 39th President, but as surprises go this one is rather slight. Perhaps instead it’s the fact that this time around, unlike in their 1992 face-off, Bush the Elder beat a certain former Arkansas governor. We’ll let you decide.
Any surprises for you in the below? Let us know in the commments.
