Not so good. I got the ones in red:

1. The Bends
2. Jimmy Carter -- Carter came to mind first, and then I said Reagan.
3. Pronghorn Antelope
(Cheetah, wildebeest, Springbok, Lion)
4. Corporal Clinger
5. Eric Clapton
6. Nova Scotia
7. Pigeon -- I didn't have a clue until I saw "tumbler" and remembered a video I saw of them once. They are so cool!
8. King Tutankhamen

TRUTH !! -- The only reason I missed this is I thought it was a trick and that there were more.
