    Ataturk was a cool guy.
    Loved how he reformed Turkey.

    He is a pretty interesting guy to read about for sure, but no where near as cool as Teddy. Teddy was a beast among men.

    I don't like Teddy.
    He was more about image, than actually doing the right thing.

    I think he had some kind of mental disorder, where he had to always seem manly.

    That wouldn't surprised me in the slightest. But who do you think is the greatest?

    None to tell you the truth.
    I'm more interested in the people who improved life with inventions and machinations.

    They are the real do'ers.
    Politicians just steal their thunder.

    In my life time it is Clinton. Overall though I believe FDR.

In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    Either Coolidge or Harding.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24

    If I recall correctly, Harding was involved in some serious political scandals. Coolidge had my vote as he presided over one of the finest economic times in US history.
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    I think that is somewhat true. I do though think that there are some actions a President can take that can put him in a different category than others. The problem is it seems, to me, to be something more to do with their personality and harder to measure.
