For all the gravity with which the presidency is written about, assessments of presidents are often at least partly based on fluff more suitable for Hollywood than Washington. Among the criteria that presidential rankings use are leadership,...

Personally, I rank "Shrub" as the worst
and possibly the only war criminal.

Thanks for the interesting and informative article. Some info I knew, some I'd forgotten, but most I'd never thought about, let alone put in order like this. When looking at the modern presidents it seems almost all have some form of genocide ignored, or attributed to them. In the 21st century one would think that lessons from the past would have been learned and repitition would avoided. Am sad that many even continued where the previous presidents left off. When will we learn...

I see that Reagan's nastiness was mitigated by having Alzheimer's which really supports both my Grandfather's opinion that he always looked like he had half a mind to start World War III which in his case was all he really needed. Though Shrub's low rating does suggest that there has been some willful blindness of his actions, starting 2 long wars that bled the American taxpayer white hunting for a man who was safely living with an American ally whilst justifying acts of torture sullied America's reputation. Of course Clinton & Obama are hardly Lilly white but then compared to the likes of Nixon, Reagan & G.W. Bush they aren't so bad.

Remember back to the presidential campaign of 2012. Romney was trying to sell himself as a businessman who knew how to get things done. He dragged out his experience as the lead of the Salt Lake Winter Olympic Games and their success. Ever wonder what the country would look like if these past almost 6 years had been under a President Romney?

"For the president is not a CEO. Except for managing subordinates, the business field has some of the worst guidelines one could choose for political office. Ones ability to turn a profit for ones self or a company has nothing to do with running a country. "

Romney might have tried to argue that the Salt Lake games were a "charity" as such but they were not. They were there to cover their costs and perhaps a produce a profit for the US Olympics. That is no charity.

According to the article, "The two better models would be, one, running a charity. ... The other model one could use should be either unions or civil rights organizations. "

I for one am glad that Americans did not have to suffer under the cold realities of a Mitt Romney or the Republicanus/Teabaggers. And I hope going forth that the balance of "power" flows to the left with full regard for all Americans.

The world as it is is selling or trading aliveness for survival. Virtually every existing institution is like this.
Government and education, for instance, fail to do their jobs; but they are very good at justifying and perpetuating themselves, and dominating others. Like the individuals who created and who sustain them. In general terms what might be noticed is that the old style leadership is changing. No longer are those simply out for personal power and wealth able to fool people so easily.........
