On this day in 1955: Churchill resigns as prime minister

On April 7, 1955, the years of "blood, tears, toil, and sweat" had finally wore down Winston S. Churchill as he ended his second tenure as prime minister of Great Britain.

Sixty years later he is remember and loved by devotees to freedom everywhere.

However, President Barack Obama thought so little of Churchill that he returned a bust of the Great Briton to the British Embassy in Washington.

Too bad we can't return Obama to Chicago.
