    The easy choices here are Washington and Jefferson. But I like James Madison, without his leadership we could very well have lost the war of 1812 and reverted back to England. Some historians call that war the second Revolution. New England also came close to seceding from the Union over the war and negotiating a separate peace with Great Britain. interesting times, so I am going to go with Madison.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Well you kind of did lose the war we plundered Washington burned the White House and American forces faced spectacular defeats by the some of the same forces you fought against in the Revolution, including Natives and Blacks. The war showed how horrible the American forces really were. We kept our freedom.

    Don't really have an opinion on that list of names, but I could tell you who my favorite future dead president will be.

    Jello Biafra. But on a serious note, Washington.

    One of the two Adams' boys. Neither were well liked, somewhat because both were way ahead of their time in their thinking.

    However, lately I have been wondering what would happen if Hamilton was President. He was a self made man and lacked the aristocratic tendencies of Washington and Jefferson. Would have added a twist to our history.
    Strongly disagree here. Hamilton's public statements and writings suggested him to have rather strong preference towards elitism in and the general concept of a ruling class.
