    Probably either George Washington or John Quincy Adams. One of them created a government from scratch and then let it go without permanently taking it over. The other spared the American people by (thankfully) doing nothing notable for four years.

    I think Abraham Lincoln, he was able to preserve the Union.

    This question was asked a few weeks ago.

    At that time I said it was George Washington because he created the office, did not let it develop any royal trappings and limited himself to two terms which became customary until Roosevelt ran for a third and fourth term, at which time the Constitution was amended to limit the person to two terms.

    Washington comes in first.
    Lincoln comes in second and
    Harry Truman comes in third--having the courage to use the atomic bomb and working hard to rebuild Europe in record time.

      Thanks for letting me know the question was asked a few weeks ago.  I will let someone know who cares.

      Was just an observation and not a complaint. I did not intend to offend.

      No offense taken.  It is just that you could say that about almost every question asked on hubpages.

      You are probably right. This one just hit me as more recent. I will be more careful with such observations in future. Have a good day.

      Well thank you for the honesty and I will look a little harder to make sure it has been a while since a question was asked.  I just never saw the question even after hitting the similar question suggestion.

    If I'm not mistaken most historians rate Lincoln #1 and Roosevelt #2 and Washington or Jefferson #3. That works for me. (Larry, I'm a Truman fan also. My grandmother grew up down the street from Bess Truman.
