It's no shock that U.S. presidents have a history of poor sleep habits while in office, but the extremity of their insomnia might be surprising. President Nixon roamed the White House halls at night and spoke to the portraits on the walls; President Clinton slept less than five hours each night and phoned old friends at 3 a.m.; President Bush Sr. relied on powerful sleep aids to sleep at night.
With less than one week in office under his belt, President Obama undoubtedly already has a lot on his plate – meaning he'll probably not get the recommended eight hours of sleep at night. In fact, like most Americans, he'll probably be lucky to get six hours.
