If I could meet any president it would be Lincoln.

I think a camping trip with Washington, Lincoln, Grant, Teddy, Coolidge, and Reagan would be a lot of fun.

Well hell MSNBC says it, it must be so.

Read Caro's books & one will have a fuller view of LBJ.

Favorite United States president


Without Kennedy's war he'd have ranked as one of the greats.

Thomas Jefferson as he was truly America's first A-hole president. Overall, I have to go with Dwight Eisenhower. Yeah he was the President in the time of great welfare (FDR-Richard Nixon) but what he helped to do has had a lasting effect even in 2017.
