    Actually what is happening at a particular time determines who would be the best president. The right person for the time at hand is the key!
    Washington was the right person to lead the country after the Revolutionary War. Lincoln was the right person to lead the country during the Civil War. FDR was the right person to lead the country during the Great Depression, Johnson was the right person to push Civil Rights bills through congress, Reagan was the right person to expand the economy during the 80s while building a stronger military which helped to breakup the Soviet Union. Clinton was the right person to bring us out the recession during the early 90s and so on.
    This is why it's difficult for anyone to truly say any of the presidents would be the right person {no matter what} issues arise.
    Another thing we have to consider is the different political climates. Clearly if we had a Tea Party within the Republican Party during the Reagan era he would not have been able to raise the debt ceiling (18) times and sign the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 which provided amnesty for 3 million illegal immigrants.
    He wouldn't be conservative enough!
    Congress and the senate have a major say in how effective a president is in pushing  through the agenda they promised while running for office. Essentially the stars have to line up just right.
