Who do you think was the best president of the United States?
It depends on how you define "best". FDR heads the list for many a liberal, but you won't find many votes for the New Dealer coming from the conservative side of the political spectrum. In more recent times, Reagan gets a lot of conservative laurels, but he's hardly universally loved, either.
Take your pick!
George Washington. Without him we would be far from what we are today. He set many foundations that later Presidents lived by such as resigning after 2 terms of office (although now that's a law). But back when George Washington was president, he could have been elected over and over again because of his overwhelming popularity. Instead he chose to set an example for future presidents and resign because he knew that the power of corruption would get to anyone if they were president too long. He also proved himslef over and over again by setting good examples and foundations.
Abraham Lincoln is the best president of the United States.
Harry Truman. He had to make perhaps the most difficult decision of any president. Lincoln did not really make the decision to enter the Civil War, it was made by the events of the time. Washington was a first rate general and got the country off to a good start. Kennedy's mark must be 'incomplete'. FDR was the longest serving president and perhaps the most pragmatic.
Who would be the best choice for the next president? Oprah might be the top of the crop. I would follow her anywhere. Trump might be good. Hillary could probably do a good job. How bout George Clooney? No. I don't think Ameican would ever vote for an actor for President.
