    I think that Bill Clinton was the greatest president. He inspired a mood of optimism in the country.

    I have to agree with my 3 1/2 year old son and say that Abraham Lincoln was the greatest President.

    Each President was a man of his own time and in a historical context, they were all great (okay so some, not so much), but Abraham Lincoln is by far the single most influential man of his time; the one who inspired the greatest change and set America on a path that would ultimately create the base for the dominance of the 20th century.

    George Washington, one of our Founding Fathers, a brave man who had a vision for freedom and liberty, who got this whole thing going!

    I am going to say Calvin Coolidge because of the stellar economic times duuing his tenure.

    I will go with Thomas Jefferson because in his writing of the Declaration of Independence he laid the groundwork for our Constitution. He also showed that the US would not kneel to overseas bullying with his attack on the Barbary pirates.
