"Terms and policies" vs "Perception"[edit]

I'm trying to understand how Bushisms & Movement to impeach would be based on policies of the President? These Bushism & Movements are based on opinions mostly and should belong under "Perception". Does anyone agree? ViriiK 13:19, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

Yes – thanks for spotting; I've been bold and moved them already. Best wishes, David Kernow (talk) 18:24, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

Reordering the topics in this template[edit]

The current order is:

  • Family
  • Pets
  • Life
  • Presidency
  • Image
  • Books
  • Elections

WP:NAV sets out three criteria: "The style of any navigation template depends on its articles, how they are most intuitively presented, and previously established convention."Looking at each of these three, it is clear the topics in template need to be re-ordered.

1. The style depends on its articles - subject is a former US President - therefore, the most important thing is his presidency and career and these should go first 2. The most intuitive presentation - intuitively, most readers would be looking for articles about his presidency and political career and these should go first. 3. Previously established convention - looking at 3 former presidents who have templates, it is clear that a reasonable order would be Presidency - Elections - Life - Image - Books - Family Life (including pets)

Barack Obama Template:Barack Obama

Presidency — Early life and political career — Books — Speeches — Family (includes family dog)

Bill Clinton Template:Bill Clinton

Politics (includes Presidency), Impeachment, Post-presidency — Books — Family (includes pets)

Ronald ReaganTemplate:Ronald Reagan

Life — Presidency — Speeches — Books — Elections — Family

Based on this I have done a basic re-ordering of the groups to:

  • Presidency
  • Elections
  • Life
  • Image
  • Books
  • Family (includes pets)
