A quick history lesson on the presidency

From Talking Points Memo:

In the last hundred years four Democratic presidents have been elected to a second term as president. Only two did so winning a majority of the popular vote in both elections – Franklin Roosevelt and Barack Obama.

OK, class. Who were the two Democrats who won reelection without taking a majority of the popular vote in both elections?

Woodrow Wilson and Bill Clinton.
