    I'm surprised Ike didn't make the list. Anyone who has read his speeches, especially his "farewell" address, knows this guy had and insight into an love for America that stands above any POTUS on that list. Heck, that's initially why I liked Obama as a candidate - his speeches were right out of the Eisenhower book. Unfortunately the difference seems to be that Ike backed up his talk.

    Really, Ike brought a mobility to this nation that provided for us a freedom and prosperity unmatched by what we had before.

    I think George Washington was our best president. He wasn't a stuffed suit. He was a tough man who lead hissoldiers into war for the sake of our country.

    A leader should be willing to sacrifice himself for the betterment of his people; put his life on the line. You don't see presidents doing that too often these days.

    mostly teachers' degrees and law degrees. teachers tend to be bottom of the barrel academically.

    People with the most coveted degrees-the MD don't tend to be Democrats and Oblamacare is making that even more true
