    George W Bush. :LOL:

    If I had to pick I would probably have to go with JFK. But honestly I don't know enough about our history to make that call.

    Damn, why didn't you make it the latest 12 presidents? I wanted to vote for Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

    I'm going to vote for Nixon, simply for the fact that he's hilarious in Futurama(and that I don't care too strongly for any of the presidents listed in general)

    ^ I would've put all 43 presidents there if I could, but the polls have a 10 option limit.

    I only know those before George Bush senior through books so I'm not going to vote for any of them. Bill Clinton would get my vote for so many reasons but mainly because I like him as a person. He's got so much charisma it just oozes out of him.

    Yeah I voted for Eisenhower too (wow never thought I'd say that), I'm surprised more people aren't voting for him.

    wow I'm surprised people voted for Reagan, the man was a serious loon and more dangerous than what he was worth

    so fave president during their presidency? hmmm that's a tough one ..kennedy had the bay of pigs, bloody coups orchestrated by the cia in Dominican republic, Ecuador, and the Congo, Clinton had his bombings of Sudan, Bosnia, and Afghanistan, even Gerald Ford had Angola, Jphnson had his domestic spying program Operation chaos, the Dominican Republic, Indonesia, Ecuador, etc etc etc ...really it's more about choosing the one with the least atrocities under their belt ..but that's not something I'm all that intersted in researching

    I think William Henry Harrison is a good choice for you.

    He did jack shit in his presidency. Nothing good, nothing bad. All he did was die. Only took him a month after entering office too. The man's quick.

    he's not on that list

    I kinda like Eisenhower's warning against the military industrial complex speech (read it dont be lazy), and Carter is ok at times ..a few others had successes in domestic issues but since I'm not american I dont care all that much ..it was usually individual americans who brought about change rather than government anyways so it's kinda hard to be all that positive in light of their horrible history of foreign policy

    I merely said it because I'm sure you're liable to discredit every American president simply because they have controversy in their term. I picked him because... well... he did nothing as president but die.

    Shortest. Presidency. Ever. :LOL:

    Sounds like an entertaining challenge!

    Remember, it only counts if it was done during his presidency!
