    Why is Bill Clinton on the first place?

    Bush 1
    Nixon. up until Watergate
    Clinton. He had his problems but the 90's were like the roaring 20's, a lot of fun and the economy was rolling.
    JFK. His handling of the Cuban Missile crisis was spot on.
    Reagan. He was a great leader, but his policies sucked big time. But I got to give him points for his leadership.

    RWR was the second greatest POTUS of the 20th century, trailing only FDR, so it's an easy call that he tops this list. Cold War victory and the foundation for a generation of prosperity. Nice work, Ronnie.

    I think Clinton did a nice job of riding the good times set up by Reagan and Bush. Plus he had the good looks and was a great master bull$hitter. Clinton only continued the policies of Bush. He raised taxes, pushed through NAFTA, and continued the policies that allowed the growth of the housing bubble that eventually brought this country economically to it's knees.

    I am not letting Cowboy Bush Jr. off with the unending war in the Middle East. We will never have economic prosperity as long as the Devils playground continues to bankrupt this country. Obama has been unable to restore our economy for the same reason. The Middle East is a black hole sucking money with no return on investment.

    JFK wasn't POTUS in the last 50 years, he died in 63'.

    Yes, I will be THAT guy.

    I was thinking the same, there hasn't been a truly great president in a long, long time.

    In this new century, one would hope he or she doesn't take their sweet time in showing up.
