    I admire FDR the most. He wasnt perfect but he in my opinion is the best.

    My choice as well. His greatest achievements I think was the creation of a middle class in America and erecting a firewall between investment banks and commercial banks, thus eliminating the problem of banks too big to fail for a half century until that firewall was dismantled in 1999.

    I agree with that and he lead this country through one of the few justifiable wars in our history. Although i strongly disagree with his policy on Japanese Americans strongly he still did many great things and was a great man and president that lead this country through tough times, made tough and great decision economically and laid the framework for a more just socio-economical situation in this country.

    He did some awful things to the Japanese, passed some horrible things like the NRA, and futzed with the judicial branch. But he's my favorite too, namely for his leadership in the Depression.

    William Henry Harrison. He did literally nothing while in office, setting a positive example for all future presidents.

    Don't know who the best president was. All I know is that although America is out of the bushes it is clearly not out of the woods yet.

    Re: Best US President

    Jefferson is an obvious choice, but Grover Cleveland was also pretty good.

    Grover did a few things in his first term:

    -Reduced the amount of Federal employees
    -He vetoed bills based on Constitutionality
    -Stood firm with the Gold Standard
    -Took the lead for Tariff Reforms
    -Practiced a Non-Interventionist Foreign Policy

    In his next term

    -Restored the Treasury's gold by getting Congress to repeal the Sherman Silver Purchase Act
    -Led a charge to stop the Pullman Strike
    -Kept a non-interventionist foreign policy and went on to recognize the new Republic of Hawaii
    -Allowed Utah to join the Union

    Cleveland is also the only president to serve two non-consecutive terms and is listed twice of the Presidents.
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.

    Impossible to answer, IMO.
    FDR for one
    TR for another
    BO maybe considering who he is stuck with in congress...and a great deal of the American people..
    The Rs and all others never had this impediment.
