    I don't know if this has been discussed here before, but I found this on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historical_rankings_of_U.S._Presidents

    Thoughts? Agree? Disagree? See anything interesting as far as poll position as time passes?

    Can someone tell me what it is that Kennedy did that was so fabulous? I think the only reason people respect him so much is cause he was killed in office.

    And id still love to know what is so great about Clinton. He really shouldnt be so high.

    And why isnt Reagan higher? I mean the guy ended World War III and brought hope back to the country. Yet Kennedy does better? what gives?

    I wasn't alive for Kennedy, nor really politically coherent during Reagan, but the Cuban Missile Crisis seemed to be a rather defining moment for Kennedy.

    That and he was a prettyboy. :ssex:
