I am a little bias when it comes to this so I won't answer. I am however interested in the responses to this thread.

George Bush Sr.

Handled the situation in Iraq better than anyone could ask, foreign policy led to the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the Soviet Union [much of the ground work he personally laid down as VP], and domestic policy established the economic success the Clinton administration took credit for.

Kennedy is underrated for that?



I dont believe i have ever heard someone say that Kennedy is underrated.



Kennedy did nearly push us into nuclear war. For that alone he should not be held in such high esteem.


Then if you want to give Clinton a black eye for his moral inepitude, then Kennedy deserves an even blacker eye.

I think Clinton was a great president and that his private life dosent affect that fact he did a good job. I take it back Clinton is the most underrated president.

I agree. But I grew up in that generation, so I might be a little biased. If Kennedy is underrated, than so is Teddy R.!

Make your statement, but back it up with something of some type of substance please, or else your opinion means absolutely nothing.

are you talking about automobiles?



Railroads were already in existance prior to Teddy.



The automobile did not really become 'popular' until the 1910s.



So what transportation are you talking about exactly?

Not trains, that would be Grant. Cars came around that time. He was responsible for the creation of REAL roads, not dirt roads...

Grant had little to do with the development of railroads.


The only thing that came about during Grant's presidency was the transcontinental railroad. Railroads existed in the north and midwest long before Grant.


And it was Congress not Grant responsible for the building of the transcontinental railroad.



As far as T. Roosevelt, he also played a marginal role in the development of the automobile system.


It was not until Henry Ford made his Model T affordable to the everday person that automobiles began to take off.


And that was after T. Roosevelt left office.

He was a great president. Just the Monica thing. That was stupid of him, but he handled evrything well and avoided lots of wars.
