It's official, Biden has been president longer than William Henry Harrison

William Henry Harrison
Sleepy Joe Biden, 78, passed a major milestone today. He's now served as president longer than our 9th commander-in-chief, William Henry Harrison. At 68, Harrison was the oldest man elected president until Ronald Reagan dis so when he was 69. The Gipper served two full terms and of course acheived great success for America.

Harrison, a hero of the War of 1812 and the Indian Wars, was believed to be already well past his prime when he took the oath of office in 1841. Without a hat and overcoat, on a cold and windy day, Harrison gave the longest inauguration speech ever--it lasted nearly two hours. Three weeks later Harrison took ill and he passed away exactly one month after his inauguration, probably of pneumonia.
