Video: Clint Eastwood's Favorite Presidents are Lincoln and Truman

| by Michael Allen

Over the weekend, TMZ asked acting legend Clint Eastwood, who is a Republican, to name his favorite president (video below).

Eastwood answered: “Lincoln was great. You mean in our lifetime? I like (Democratic President Harry S.])Truman because he got mad at people going after his daughter. We haven’t seen one for a while.”

Eastwood recently drew praise from Democrats and scorn from Republicans for his inspiring Chrysler Super Bowl ad that praised Detroit for rebounding after 2008 economic collapse.
