Judging from the U.S. presidency, yes. Here is an astonishing statistic I recently encountered: Only 32 percent of the American population has blue or blue-gray eyes, but more than 70 percent of our presidents did.
Digging deeper, it gets worse. Almost half of Americans are brown-eyed, but only 18 percent of our presidents have been. Moreover, of the eight with brown eyes, one was impeached (Andrew Johnson), three were so unpopular they didn’t get a second term (John Quincy Adams, Chester A. Arthur, Lyndon B. Johnson), one was stupid enough to deliver an interminable inaugural address, coatless and hatless, in the chill rain, catch cold, and die in a month (William Henry Harrison). And one was … Richard Nixon.
