People of Van Buren's era were generally much shorter than today, and I think with the importance of television, presidential candidates in the future will always be of greater height, but without looking skinny. Hilary Clinton may change that, but obviously one question the power brokers will be asking is, does it matter fro a woman? Interestingly the estimates for her height range from 5 foot 4 to 5 foot 8.5.

Bing lists Wikipedia and Freebase as sources, and the latter had 5' as the height until I just changed it to 5'6". We'll see if the search engines pick up the change. Wikipedia also has 5'6" in the Heights of Presidents page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heights_of_presidents_and_presidential_candidates_of_the_United_States
