    A good person doesn't necessarily make a good President, but a bad person definitely won't.

    I think Obama does make a better President than Bush II or god forbid a President Cheney. Bush is not a bad person, but he was clueless due to his religious ideology. His administration's policy regarding abstinence only in both America and Africa have consequences that hurt real people. Reversing these policies alone is doing good. The idea that Obama's policies delayed the recession is completely unsupported, the recession could have been much worse. Presidents don't have that much clout over the economy despite what both sides like to claim. The fact is America is facing a structural change, it cannot compete with developing country for low end manufacturing jobs.

    Unfortunately, he's the only conservative ranked at the top.

    I think he's a good person, but I also think he has a few screws loose.
