    Well Clinton had a few "most" so maybe him. I mean he was the most Corrupt, the most unethical, and the most untruthful. Add in he beat a slam dunk charge of perjury before the US Senate. I mean there was no doubt the charge was true yet he was found , by the Senate, to have NOT lied to a Judge.

    All that has to count for SOMETHING.

    Not to mention the fact he had almost no money before becoming President and is now worth MILLIONS. And his wife is worth even more MILLIONS. Of course we all knew how smart and capable she was, I mean she invested 1000 dollars and a few months later EARNED 100,000 dollars. We just need to be thankful she didn't move to stock trading, she would own the world by now with those kind of profits.

    Chester Arthur.

    Why you ask? Two reasons, really:

    1. Can any of you tell me anything about him without looking him up?

    Clearly what we need are more POTUSs who leave office and nobody can remember a damned thing about what they did or did not do.

    And a republican also....He's just the man we need in todays office. Anti-monopoly and big business. Anti-immigration, etc....It's funny an advocate of anti-immigration was Irish...lol. Anyway, I'd have to agree with you on this one.

    He was Collector of the Port of New York and the 21st President. I learned that from the movie Die Hard 3.

    Then why wouldn't you choose William Henry Harrison? He contracted pneumonia weeks into his presidency and died.

    George Washington. He could have been King but turned it down. He also set the standard for term limits.

    Carter, clearly - but the country wasn't up to his standard and he was betrayed into playing cowboys. Pity about that.

    Carter may have the best of intentions ideologically, but he was one sorry President. He wasn't suited to the job.
