Just to see how totally unscientific I can get, here are a couple of charts and a conclusion about the Presidents of the United States that I have seen in my lifetime… It is all my opinion, and certainly is here just for fun.  Debate the lists if you want to …. There are certainly no arguments with the first two lists, are there?

My rankings…. combining all the above after some thinking and unscientific mathematical ranking.  I am surprised to see Carter up so high… but I always wished Bush I had served a second term, so that was no surprise.  Obama, of course, is a work yet in progress and we’ll leave him at that.  It is almost unfair to put Kennedy as high as second, since he didn’t even finish one term – and therefore also the same could be said for Ford, since he didn’t finish a term either, so maybe he should be higher.  I was also no big fan of Clinton, expecting him to be lower due my opinion of his extra curricular machinations, so there you are.
