JFK

Posted by Rice, David M at Feb 16, 2010 08:26 PM
While other presidents dealt with much more and freed many, JFK will be remembered forever. He launched the US into space and in the future when people are going to the moon, JFK's dream, for vacation it will be him who is remembered years to come.

Woodrow Wilson

Posted by kopplm95 at Feb 17, 2010 04:58 PM
Even though he is not my favorite president, Woodrow Wilson pushed diligently and tirelessly for the now-defunct League of Nations. Regardless of the outcome, Wilson pushed for a world without wars and held diplomacy and democracy as top priorities. His ideal set America up as a concrete world power and infused political liberalism into our foreign policy, much of which is reflected in the current international system.

Barack Obama

The Historic Health Reform Signing is a great accomplishment.

Lincoln and Washington

Posted by Nicholson, Thomas F at Sep 24, 2010 09:40 AM
I believe that there were two of them because without Washington's leadership during the Revolutionary War to his Farewell Address where he warned of a two party system and because Lincoln was leader in one of the most trying times in American History. Anyone who said Obama, should have there head examined for infectious dieases!!!
