Dem in White House = Yankees title

I don't have much to say about the New York Yankees winning the World Series in six games over the Philadelphia Phillies since I watched almost none of it. But I did find an interesting coincidence -- the Yankees only win when there is a Democrat in the White House.

Since winning the 1958 World Series when Republican Dwight Eisenhower was president, all nine of the Yankees' titles have come under Democratic administrations -- 1961, 1962, 1977, 1978, 1996, 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2009. This bodes well for the Yankees for at least the next three seasons. For those who did watch (ratings were way up this year compared to 2008), how would you rank this Series in terms of excitement and quality of play?
