I'll say Roosevelt, because he was a master pragmatist, and managed to successfully negotiate with perhaps the most neurotic and dangerous dictator of all time, Stalin.

My knowledge between Truman and Carter is limited but i'd go for Clinton. While a difficult presidency he did well regarding the economy, engaged in foreign intervention and made several good moves regarding guns and crime although not massively significant.

LBJ- His domestic policy was tasty and improved things greatly. Shame about the whole Vietnam war which was a stupid mistake for him. Alas he essentially had to become president after dear old JFK got killed.

Actually FDR and JFK in a close second

LBJ - Essentially carried out JFK's domestic vision, with the Civil Rights act and Great Society. Vietnam was a bad mistake, but he had terrible advisers and wasn't exactly a foreign policy expert. History has judged far better than his contemporaries did.

Nixon - Managed to put an end to the Vietnam war, opened relations with China and was a shrewd liberal populist. Wasn't exactly a likeable guy, and was extremely paranoid, but nonetheless an effective President and ruthless politician. Would be interesting to see how his second term would have ran without Watergate.


I expect JFK to do well in this poll, who in my opinion is a bit overrated. Although his brinkmanship during the Missile Crisis potentially saved the world.
