    Republicans gave Clinton no choice but to make good decisions. In essence, Dole and Gingrich should be on there too: Clinton/Dole/Gingrich. At least the man was smart enough to do the right thing, unlike another president I know *cough Obama*.

    People that judge Kennedy a 'great' president are unrealistic at best. They are blinded by an image. We have no idea of what he may have been. What he was...especially from a foreign policy and a military perspective...wasnt all that impressive. Socially...he was a Reagan style democrat. He would be disgusted by the handout nation we have become.

    Thats what made Clinton such a good president. He had the morals of a rat, but from an executive role, he was very good and very good for the country. He knew when to fight the GOP and when to go along. He was also masterful at both blaming the other side for passing reforms (like welfare) and then later taking credit for it. The man had skilz. I'd take him back tomorrow.

    Why wouldn't that be that Reagan was like a JFK-Dem since JFK came first? And yes, JFK was socially conservative, except with his own personal behavior. He didn't come around on civil rights quickly either, like Reagan. JFK may not be great to some, but he belongs in the poll, that's all.

    Bill would be part of the package with Hillary, for better or worse. Hillary's time has come and gone. 24 years since 1992 and the years in Arkansas politically have taken their toll on her. Repubs are licking their chops at the prospect.

    the quote is used in the 1951 movie, "The Desert Fox: The Story of Rommel" staring James Mason, and the quote is spoken by the actor ..Leo G. Carroll.

    however the quote is " victory has a 100 fathers ,defeat is an orphan"

    in 1951 JFK as a lone congressman, and not widely known.

    All 44 are unique, the magic of our system. With 4 murders changing our time lines, especially with T. Roosevelt and LBJ.
