Ranking the Presidents

John Silveira posted a great article in Backwoods Home Magazine back in 1998 entitled "Who were the best...and worst U.S. Presidents? " which approaches the issue from a different point of view than that of most partisan commentary.


“If you want an activist President, you’re probably a Democrat,” he said, “although you may also be a modern-day Republican. If you want a President who leaves the people alone, you’re probably an old-time Republican, a 19th century Democrat, or—and this is more likely—a modern-day Libertarian.”

I'm so happy to see a ranking that is based on constitutional grounds and actually places Lincoln as one of the worst presidents instead of the best.
