Lincoln Edges Out Reagan For Greatest President.

Interesting CNN poll.

http://www.cnn.com/POLITICS/blogs/po...-greatest.html

Monday, February 19, 2007

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- When it comes to the best American president ever, Abraham Lincoln edges out Ronald Reagan in a squeaker, according to a USA Today/Gallup Poll released Monday.

Nearly 18 percent of Americans regard Lincoln the "greatest United States president," while 16 percent give "the Gipper" that nod.

This poll differs from a similar one taken two years ago that found Reagan to be the best president with 20 percent of the vote, followed by Bill Clinton with 15 percent and Lincoln with 14 percent. Clinton comes in fourth in this year's poll with 13 percent.

Current president, George W. Bush, comes in eighth in this year's poll with two percent of the vote -- falling two spots from the earlier poll when he came in sixth with five percent.

The poll was conducted from February 9-11 and has a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.

USA Today/Gallup Poll of 1,006 national adults age 18 and over conducted Feb. 9-11.

Abraham Lincoln: 18%
Ronald Reagan: 16%
John Kennedy: 14%
Bill Clinton: 13%
Franklin Roosevelt: 9%
George Washington: 7%
Harry Truman: 3%
George W. Bush: 2%
Theodore Roosevelt: 2%
Dwight Eisenhower: 2%
Thomas Jefferson: 2%
Jimmy Carter: 2%
Gerald Ford: 1%
George H. W. Bush: 1%

Not completely. He had a part in its development but he was not the cause.

I would argue that Carter started it with the hostage taking at the embassy in Iran and Regan didn't end it with when he didn't pursue the perpetrators of the marine barracks bombings in Lebenon in 1983.

Appeasement never works.

I'd have to agree with this assertion, the influence of political corruption is too great in that arena...

It is quite posible that the greatest president hasn't come yet.

I am a little confused by you grammar here but I will take a shot at this comment.

I disagree. I believe that the greatest president we have had so far was George Washington. If it wasn't for him the America we know today quite possibly wouldn't be America at all.

He left some large shoes to fill.
