    C) I brought up Clinton smoking weed because of the "I didn't inhale" crap. All of the listed Presidents admit to smoking weed. He's the only idiot who used the "I didn't inhale" excuse. Which is, by the way, one of the dumbest things any POTUS has ever said IMO.
    D) The same could be said of Clinton due to his weak foreign policy fostering an environment for terrorism. But you don't hear me saying that do you. You hear me talking about what kind of guys they are ie infidelity or drinking which are character issues.
    You want to debate Bush policies, give me a link to a thread and we'll do that. If not, stay on subject in this one. The OP clearly states foreign policy aside.

    All of them have different likable qualities:
    --Clinton is who I'd choose to have dinner with or maybe a couple of drinks - any relaxed, fun, (and public!) social atmosphere.
    --If I were going to football game or doing something active like mountain biking, sport fishing, taking a day to climb a 14er - I'd choose Bush.
    --If I were in the mood to hang out late at night at some coffee dive and talk history, philosophy, or human nature - I'd choose Obama.

    Got it, its okay to be responsible for tens of thousands dying unnecessarily but not to smoke weed or get a BJ.

    Bush would probably be the most likable. He's a southern wise ass , the kind of people I grew up with, and has a genuine personality. Just read his book Decision Points. He writes it like he's having a conversation with you, which makes it enjoyable. Kind of sucks that people punish him for his zealotry though. Obama, politics aside, also seems like a person I'd like to shoot some hoops with. He, like Bush, also seems to have his s**t together, and also seems to have a genuine personality. Clinton....don't know much about him....but from what I've heard he's not a terrible person....but he wouldn't be the kind of guy I'd hang out with.

    As a liberal, it's slightly painful for me to acknowledge that I think Bush was the most likable of the last few Presidents.

    I think GW Bush has the best personal character, but Bill Clinton would be the most fun to hang out with.
