Is it 'Air Force One' even if you're a deceased President?

I know ex-Presidents of the USA are still referred to as 'President' (presumably a courtesy term), so would a plane carrying a deceased ex-president still be referred to as 'Air Force One'?

Approval ratings for presidents.

Can anyone suggest a link that has approval rating polls of all of the previous presidents. It doesnt have to be all, but preferably the last ten presidents. The more information the better, for example preferrably more then one apprval rating for each president (perhaps their highest and lowest rating). Any links will be greatly appreciated, even if they arent exactly what im looking for.

Marine One and Two

In follow-up to this question, the president usually flies in a VH-3D helicopter (at least that's what most pictures show). But the Marine unit that flies him around also has a VH-60N, which this seems to suggest is always accompanying the VH-3D. Anyone know why? What is the VH-60N used for? Are they interchangeable? Is one just for staffers/aides? Why not use two VH-3Ds?

2004 Presidential Debates

I'm doing some research on the 2004 US Presidential Debates. For some reason I can't seem to find the definitive numbers on television audiences for the three debates. It would be great if somebody could point me to a resource that breaks down the viewing audiences in the US and abroad with as much detail as possible.

Presidential Art Galleries?

I heard recently on NPR a story about the new Clinton Presidential Library and how all of the gifts of original artwork sent to the President were kept as it was illegal to throw or give away any of it. The story went on that all the artwork was at the library but that there was so much that only a slight minority of it would ever be displayed. My question is, does anyone know more about this law obligating the President to keep the drawing I send him/her? Would they have to keep it even if it stunk or was otherwise somehow unappealing? I imagine you know what I'm getting at with our friend W in office for another four years...

What Traditions or Protocols Govern the Timing of Presidential Portraits?

Are there any special protocols concerning the use of photos/portraits of the POTUS? I'm asking because I'm curious as to why all the Presidents up to Bush I here used a painting while Clinton and W. Bush used photos. Is there a set number of years before a President should get a portrait?
