Best Answer

Because if a president serves two terms in a row, he (or soon, she) gets to keep the same number. So George W Bush was not 43 and 44, he was only 43.

However, the second four year term is inaugurated in the same was as the first.

Eight presidents have died in office. Obama is our 44th president. 8/44 = 18 percent.

The usual answer is 44. At least if you count Presidents by every CHANGE in the person serving (as is usually done). By this method of counting, Grover Cleveland is treated as both 22nd & 24th, since his two terms were interrupted by a term under Benjamin Harrison.But if you are asking about the number of different people to serve in the office, the number is currently (in mid-2010) is 43.
