    Nope. Teddy tops my list. Followed by Lincoln, Washington, McKinley, and Wilson.

    In my lifetime (Reagan forward), I'd rank him 2nd behind Clinton.

    I admire Teddy too. Just learned, though, from the book "the China mirage"by James Bradley, that Teddy was responsible for the takeover of Korea by Japan in 1905. He covertly assured the Japanese that he would support them in the takeover, and then ignored pleas from the Korean government to come to their aid despite a written treaty guaranteeing US military protection. None of he previous books on TR that I have read have covered this betrayal.

    I have never heard that. I am going to spend some time looking into it today. Thanks!

    McKinley? Can you elaborate?

    Nixon was better, more honest too.

    Yes = 11
    No = 74

    A consensus appears to be emerging.

    I think he was a good president. He helped groom TR. He introduced the gold standard. Helped put the US on the world stage, increased exports, improved the economy. Won the spanish american war. Plenty of accomplishments as far that goes, but more importantly after Lincoln was killed our country was struggling to move forward. McKinley was, imo, the first president to push America forward after a long line of disappointing presidents. Some would argue it started to change with Cleveland.

    No I would say George Washington is best President of all time.
