    It isn't a president in this century. Hell when duels stopped you lost a ton of badassness.

    If “effective in achieving his goals” is the measure of ‘badass’ then I believe Obama is pretty damn badass, too!

    No. President Obama isn't even on the list. He doesn't have to deal with duels. Not many men are willing to duel some one.

    He might be the first president who could dunk though.

    Truman was a spunky SOB. I would highly recommend "Truman" by David McCullough. Truman served as an artillery captain in WWI, seeing intense action at Meusse-Argonne. He was a very courageous and competent officer there. Truman knew the military exceedingly well, and was a far more competent President than that jackass FDR.

    He wasn't on the list, except for the generalized "everone except TR" option.

    I will check out the book. I did like how Roosevelt could simplify things so everyone could understand just what had to be done. For that I think he was a good leader.

    Consider this memo given to Roosevelt:

    "Such preparation shall be made as will completely obscure all Federal Buildings, occupied by the Federal Government, during an air raid for any period of time from visibility by reason or internal or external illumination. Such obscuration may be obtained by means of blackout construction or by termination of illumination. This will, of course, require that in building areas in which work must continue during the blackout, construction must be provided so that internal illumination will continue. Other areas may be obscured by termination of illumination."

    And his response:

    "In case of an air raid, turn out the lights. If you have to keep working, put something over the windows."

    I took a shot at FDR, and probably this was not the thread for it, as he is not high on any such list as is being discussed here. When it comes to testosterone, the little man from Independence had plenty. That book won the Pulitzer, and deserved it. It is pretty long too.

    And many of us would not be here if not for Harry
