I would say Carter
Indeed, he's Carter II.
Obama and Carter: two men who lacked any of the necessary experience to hold the office of President, and yet were elected as a result of extreme backlash against previous unpopular Republican administrations. Furthermore, both men are left-wing idealogs whose ideals and goals are out of the American mainstream. They are both characterized by failed domestic policies, as well as weak and inefficient foreign policies.
Obama will join Carter as a one-term President, as the voters realize their error was the result of unjustified zeal and distaste for previous administrations, rather than faith and confidence in the person running.

Hitler. Both are the best orators of their generation.
This poll does little other than exposing some of the fools.
Of the choices, I'll go with Clinton. He is a Democrat, he was not born into wealth, he has a wife who had her own career and went far in it while raising kids. He has similar politics. I suspect both have wives who had an abortion themselves at one point in time. Both wives are very ambitious and influential with their husbands.
It's my belief that a certain proportion of women who've had abortions become rabidly pro-choice to stuff their feelings of ambivalence, guilt and/or regret. Other women might go to the opposite extreme and become rabidly pro-life of course. I feel like, definitely Mrs Obama, belongs in the former category, and that her and her husband's total commitment to even late term abortion is partly influenced by her abortion in the past. They see that, without that abortion, she probably wouldn't have achieved her goals, and they want to morally justify her choice.
