    Thomas Jefferson, because he's also my favorite founding father.

    1) Lincoln for freeing the slaves, and bring back the Confederates states in too The t States of America again.

    2.) John F Kennedy/Lyndon B Johnson For giving the African Americans a chance at the same rights as other people. And for pissing of Castro, and the Mafia so badly during both of their administration's. Rest in Peace John F Kennedy may you find peace where you where sent too.

    3.) Franklin Roosevelt He got elected almost four times as president to run our country, and the fact that he got us through THE great Depression, and War world two.

    4.) Thomas Jefferson For giving us, Public schooling, and the deceleration of independence, and the Constitution. Also the Bill of rights. He would be up in the number one spot for me in a tie with Lincoln, if I had not read about his views about Intellectual women.

    Accuse me, I love Thomas Jefferson for giving us public schooling, and the fact that he crafted the Constitution, and bill of rights ect.

    And the fact, if you read about Franklin Dlenor Roosevelt you see why we like him in the first place. He was elected four time in office, and the fact he got us through the great depression, and also got us through war world two this is why we like FDR.

    I am going to leave out of consideration those before my life, simple because I do not know enough about them to really judge. I am tempted to say Jefferson, but most of the reason why are things from before he became president.

    During my lifetime, I would go with Clinton and Ford. During the Clinton years, things where good. He certainly does not get all the credit, but he has to get some. Ford took office in the worst possible way, and showed a sense of honor and integrity that really was needed from the office at the time. He sacrificed any chance of getting re-elected to do the right thing and pardon Nixon. Doing the right thing despite the cost is the sign of a good person.

    If you want to, go ahead and post why you think they kick ass; maybe this'll generate some interesting debate.

    In the US: Lincoln, of all obvious reasons. I think he's the most noncontrovesial, famous, popular, and best judged president ever.
    In South Korea: The late Kim-Dae-Jung for his effort at reunification, along with several reforms, winning the Nobel Peace Prize, and remaining as one of the few Korean politicians relatively free and clean of corruption and bribery.

    I also find it odd that some people are saying FDR and George Washington. Hello, opposite sides of the spectrum.

    You cannot respect some one from the other side of the political spectrum? Why not?
