  • Ronald Reagan, because he actually had guts to DO something instead of just run his mouth.

  • George Washington. Total bad ass.

    I's also bring back Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and John Adams. We could use thier advice.

  • Ronald Reagan.

    He was a great leader, communicator and motivator. He drew upon the strengths of past US Presidents, including the UK's Winston Churchill. He was humble yet comical. He was a visionary and a honorable person. And he revitalized the economy after Carter's gross mismanagement. If only he could be brought back to life after Obama's term and gross mismanagement of the economy, that would be a most welcome CHANGE!! :o)

  • 1. Eisenhower: he was an excellent President and provided several excellent laws of which are still protecting us, he also warned of the economic reliance that the US has on the war machine and that we should combine both intellectual and labor trade in order to be a self sufficient country.

    2. Abe Lincoln: because I was a little girl and I am an idealist as he was.

    3. Bill Clinton.

    4. FDR.

    5. George Washington.

    6. Ronald Regan for his business ideas.

  • Lincoln...a man a head of his time
    FDR...some say if he was alive and you had endless terms, he would still be in office
    I think Clinton made some poor choices, but he is an amazing smart person
    Regan because he was not afraid to use the red phone, and all the hostiges came marching home!

  • Andrew Jackson, he is the only president to actually balance the budget, plus he made the greatest land purchase of all times - the Louisiana Purchase (over 3 million acres) for $.03/acre. (Yes, I know about the Trail of Tears and all, but his over-all presidency taken as a whole makes him my favorite.) Reagan is my second favorite.

  • Clinton, even with his flaws... look at our debt today and when he was in office

  • Lincoln. The man was brilliant and he had something that is hard to find today - CHARACTER.

    Answer by Sara.Robyson at 2:36 PM on Jul. 14, 2010

    Answer by mamaofficer at 2:39 PM on Jul. 14, 2010

  • Eisenhower , he had amazing foresight

    Lincoln, because he made hard decisions that strenghened our nation ....he did things that were best for the US and NOT necessarily his personal ideals
