    Oh good grief.

    You have to look at each for their respective time periods and what they accomplished.

    By the way, do you think the Jefferson who wrote about limited government before the Constitution would agree with the Jefferson who expanded government by buying the Louisiana Purchase and otherwise making decisions to expand the federal government?

    It's clear that some posters here are so blinded by partisanship that they see the world in black and white -- if you don't agree with them 100% of the time, you are the enemy.

    It certainly seems to be the rallying cry of conservatives these days -- the "Party of No" does not understand that politics is all about compromise and negotiations.

    Since you insist, here is an easy read about him. You might also find his writings in the federalist papers interesting, also.

    As a President.... FDR, Clinton in that order.

    As a human being... Jimmy Carter, by some distance.

    Probably Clinton. Clinton was likable and that is what irked so many of his critics. He was likable to the point where more than 10 years after he was President he can still go to North Korea and rescue people. You have people STILL making jokes about Monica. NOT Bill. Monica. Any other president would have faded into total or near obscurity today or become a joke to most people. Clinton is still the guy people call to party.
