Answers
Ben has acquired such a large amount of Presidential trivia because he grew up with a father who taught history at American University. For a while Ben tries to stop thinking about presidential trivia because Investigator Larkin hints that it is his way of bonding with his father. When Ben learns that his father didn’t kill his mother and was trying to protect Ben from being killed by setting him up for his mother’s murder instead of framing him, Ben realizes that bonding with his father might not be all that bad.
