Bush.  You can go to the Elections Games Website to test your knowledge.  You'll be able to go fishing, as either a Republican or a Democrat, for questions about the presidency or an election.  I want you to try this quiz and you'll recieve a certificate after you answer all the questions.  Try the election match-up and see which symbols you can match together.  After doing the quizzes and looking at the websites, you will be able to draw a picture of either George Washington or Abraham Lincoln.
