    They all seem like likable guys.

    Going by interviews, I'd say Clinton seems the least "rehearsed". But Obama isn't yet in a position where he can afford not to be "rehearsed" (IE campaigning) and I haven't seen much of Bush post-presidency (which may reflect well on his character).

    What felony?
    Also its also considered what your definition of "high crimes" are... Is having an affair considered a "high crime"?

    Carter-phony Rosalyn decent, amy a brat

    GHWB. great guy-treated the agents and military like professionals, Threw snappy salutes to medal of honor winners. one war hero to another. Mrs Bush treated agents etc like family. If someone was sick Mrs Bush showed up with soup everyone loved her

    Clinton-liked him. despite his claims of loathing the military, he treated servicemen and agents with respect

    Hillary-the worst-referred to a medal of honor winner in an honor guard "as the help"

    Chelsea-well liked by the agents Nice polite girl who had no arrogance

    W-well liked-treated people like his fraternity brothers. Not nearly as formal as his father or even Reagan or Clinton.

    genuinely interested in people.

    wife Laura-a bit like her mother in law

    girls-not as formal and polite as Chelsea but well liked. not arrogant at all (Ron Reagan jr was the winner of the arrogance award)

    the one guy I know who was on an Obama detail is still in the service-no comment but I haven't heard anything bad about the man from secondary sources
    "Threw snappy salutes to medal of honor winners. one war hero to another."

    That would be one documented war coward to one war hero. It's a matter of public record that he refused Vietnam duty even though he was given one million dollars worth of training to fly combat planes. What an absurd comparison. AWOL for about a year, as well. You can't get reliable information from comic books or make it up.

    The one I would enjoy hanging out with most is Clinton. He's a very intelligent and insightful person and seems to be the most fun to hang out with and be friends with.

    After reading some of the posts I have to reconsider what the poll was actually asking. If I had my choice for a neighbor and didn't know him as POTUS I'd pick Bush first since he likes to do his own pruning with a chain saw, etc. And we share how to keep stuff working around our places. If it was discussion of how things work and how the world and play is I'd pick Obama. If I was going to pick someone to travel the wold with and visit museums, restaurants, etc, I pick Clinton (I don't care about naughty sex.) I do all of the above activities.

    Wrong Bush. GHWB is George Herbert Walker Bush, the WW2 vet and war hero. You're confusing him with his son, Bush II.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Yep, you're right. I was just thinking the three in the thread.

    Not owning up to weed and getting a BJ bothers you, but lying the country into an unnecessary war doesn't????

    You know, I really hate when people like you come into a thread, don't read the op nor the whole point of the friggin thing, and try to make it serious. We're talking about 3 guys. Not 3 Presidents. We're talking about what kind of guys they are. Not what political, military, foreign policy, etc decisions they made. If you want a serious discussion about Bush policies there are dozens of threads for that on here and this isn't one of them. You and Navy Pride need to take your rhetoric somewhere else.
