Kris,

That's three posts in a row where I mostly agree with you. In recent days that must count as some sort of record.

My list, off the top of my head:

1. Washington, for stepping aside and allowing a peaceful transition to happen at a time when it was unheard of.

2. Lincoln, for obvious reasons.

3. Truman, for posturing us to prosecute a four-decade Cold War.

4. Reagan, for playing a crucial role in ending said Cold War.

5. Jefferson. Not an obvious choice as greatest President -- greatest American, easily -- but he did use the presidential pardon as a check on Congress to free people convicted under the Alien & Sedition Acts. Unfortunately, that tradition has not carried on.

My top 5:

Washington
Lincoln
Clinton
FDR
Clinton


yeah, baby!
