Presidents Day Rating the Presidents
On President's Day 2009, CSPAN has come out with its second Historians Survey of Presidential Leadership, and Abraham Lincoln comes in first again. The index takes the views of 65 presidential historians and ranks the 42 former presidents according to 10 "attributes of leadership."
George W. Bush comes in at number 36. That's pretty damn high for a president who started an unnecessary, preemptive war, ruined the economy, ignored natural disasters, gave tax cuts to his rich buddies, danced while the country burned. Maybe next year, after historians gain a little more perspective on the catastrophe that was the Bush years, they'll give him his due: last place.
