"I don't have the background knowledge of all the presidents to accurately rate a top 5 of presidents, although I will say that Abraham Lincoln was the best.  He was the right man at the right time.

And let me throw out a mention for JOHN ADAMS.  That guy got no recognition, he has no major monument like Jefferson has, he has no appearance on any currency and most of what he started was credited to Jefferson/Washington."
Agreed. I'm not sure exactly why he isn't famous... I guess he got stuck between Jefferson and Washington. Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence and Washington was our first president. Kinda hard to beat. Too bad for him... all of our founding fathers were great men.

He did good and bad things. He inspired us to go to space and beat the russians, but he also got us involved in a war more pointless than Iraq."
You take the good with the bad. I admit the Reagan (my number 1) wasn't great with the economy. No president is ever perfect. Technically, Eisenhower got us involved in Vietnam (if that's what you mean) but it was Kennedy who escalated it.

I don't think I've ever seen Jefferson at the TOP of anyone's list. He's always been in the top ten but never number one. That's what I love about lists like this. Everyone's is going to be different. Props to you for being unique."
Jefferson is the only president who said that government is evil, but necessary. That's the kind of person you give the power to."
I know it's getting old, but that's kind of what the message was in the Dark Knight (or at least one of the fifteen milllion). You know, the whole "either you die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain." I guess if you hate the system, you'll try to make it better. There are so many great men in US history that's it's hard to choose just five. I had a harder time with my list than a I thought I would.

"Don't know why people think Washington was a particularly good president."
Mostly because he carried the weight of a new nation on his shoulders. The biggest thing that I admire about him is that he's the first world leader (that I know of) to voluntarily step down from power. That says a lot about his character.

Oops, that's my list of top 5 obscure presidents.  My bad."
rats, beat me to it...

You have to put Gerald Ford there somewhere (at least 6), his only claim to fame is being parodied on SNL for falling out of a grounded airplane door. He's the only person to be Vice President and President and wasn't elected to either, plus we have the Gerald Ford Library here."
Yeah, we've elected some odd people.

And Ford? He was an average president, really, but it's just so funny to me that he didn't get elected at all! He was just kind of THERE.

The coolest thing about JFK in my opinion, is that it seems that he was made to win the Cuban Missile Crisis. He's great because of one extraordinary moment. Not many people can really tell me anything great about JFK that isn't his handling of the CMC. There are other great things about him, but that was what really made him great in the history books.

"I know this is odd coming from a guy whose username is JohnFKennedy, but this is my list:

1. Ronald Reagan (that man is amazing)
2. Abraham Lincoln
3. John F. Kennedy
4. Theodore Roosevelt
5. George Washington.

And honorable mentions: Dwight D. Eisenhower (I like Ike), Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, and a lesser-know Andrew Johnson.

Who are your favorites?"
Reagan was only good because he unified the country and made everyone proud to be an American again... He started office with a surplus, and left office with a HUGE deficit."
His economy skills weren't great, but literally everything else about him is truly brilliant. So, I'm guessing Reagan isn't in your top 5?
