There has been much speculation about President Obama's second term and whether or not a "curse" exists. With that question in mind, I polled the preeminent scholars  of the American Presidency and stumbled upon the Top Ten nicknames that historians favor when referring to a President’s second term. Here they are in order of preference:

  1. The Terrible Twos
  2. Home Alone 2
  3. The Lewinski Encore
  4. Naked Gun 2 1/2: The smell of fear
  5. Nightmare on Pennsylvania Avenue: II
  6. The curse of the banana peels
  7. The Defining Martha Stewart Moment
  8. The Final Seconds on the Bridge of the Titanic
  9. Sloppy Seconds
  10. Bewitched: The Second Darrin Effect
