    The question is not easy to answer. But I would like to choose one of the following persons:

    1. George Washington
    2. Abraham Lincoln
    3. John F. Kennedy

    Now the question remains. Who of them?

    Abraham Lincoln is the greatest. Harry Truman is my favorite.

    Hello MickS, yes I meant all Presidents up until now since we do not know what the future holds.

    I also forgot to cast my vote, which would be for Abraham Lincoln because he was a man of conviction. He never let the word failure enter his vocabulary.

    I admire Abraham Lincoln for what he accomplished through his freedom speech and his actions. He stood for the rights of all men and was dedicated to serving the people.

    A very difficult question to answer.  I have three picks: 

    Abraham Lincoln
    Thomas Jefferson
    John F. Kennedy

    I have toured Gettysburg, seen a man re-enact President Lincoln and answer questions from the audience.  Absolutely incredible.  I so admired his honesty, and I would have loved to have known and met him.  I also saw the place where he gave the Gettysburg Address.

    I have toured Thomas Jefferson's home, an amazing experience.  To quote author Saul K. Padover, who wrote a biography on Jefferson, "...Jefferson was a passionate champion of the rights, freedom and dignity of man.  He devoted his whole life to the spread and realization of the democratic ideal.  And today his words still glow and still inspire."  - Saul K. Padover, "Jefferson A Great American's Life And Ideas"

    I certainly would have loved to have known and met this great man also.

    I remember the assassination of President Kennedy as if it were yesterday.  I have it logged in my diary on that horrible day.  He remains in my heart and mind as a man of integrity...and I believe he would have done so much more for our country, had he not been killed.

    Blessings to all, Sparklea

    There have been many good president, but Thomas Jefferson has to be at the top of the list. He was the author of the Declaration of Independence. He was responsible for the Louisiana Purchased, which more that doubled the size of the nation. He was an inventor and had a scientific mind. He eliminated the national debt, reformed the judiciary and while he owned slaves, he attempted to prevent the importation of slaves into the United States.

    His efforts at "Jeffersonian Democracy" for a shot time, reduced the conflicts between the Democrat-Republic Party and the Federalists.

    I wish he was around today. He was an outstanding writer--did not have a staff writing politically correct speeches for him and a man who looked to the future.

    George Washington because he didn't want the job. He did it because he loved the United States as it was then, before the rest of them starting getting power hungry.

    John F. Kennedy, hands down.  He warned America of the coming tyranny that is the 1% and NOBODY got it. Too bad Ari Onassis had to kill this fine man just to get his wife, Jackie.

    I have two "all-time favorite U.S. presidents": Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan.

    Nixon is one of my favorites because he "went to Red China" and succeeded at influencing the Chinese to side with the U.S. when it came to opposing the old Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (U.S.S.R.), or Soviet Union.

    In a nutshell, that move resulted in a dramatic change in the balance of power between the U.S. and U.S.S.R., and ended up breaking the Soviets' back.

    One of the primary reasons why Reagan is my other favorite is he finished the job that Nixon started. He built a strong and powerful U.S. military machine that the Soviets could not match; thereby, causing their empire to collapse and fall apart.

    And because of those men's accomplishments in the area of subduing the Soviet Union, no longer do American cities have to test their air-raid sirens every Friday afternoon.

    George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, it their time it was not about 'how we get there'...it was all about 'why it is important to get there and make America the best country in the whole world'....it was not about the money and fame, it was all about honesty, dignity and truth:)
