    "While George Washington was a great president, I don't think he was the best. Since he was the first, he had a lot to establish. He had to figure out a lot of things, but he did a really good job. It's hard to compare presidents since so many things have changed throughout the years...it's a completely different job now than it was then. "

    "I disagree, FDR was still a slave owner. Even if I dislike a lot of the newer Presidents, I would rank them better then him, on account of they did not own slaves."

    "Defining "best" when it comes to US Presidents can be tricky and subjective, however it is difficult to go wrong with considering one of the Founding Fathers one of our "best" presidents. He was instrumental in shaping the country as we know it since he was the author of the Declaration of Independence. He is a very colorful man, an inventor, a slave-owner, father of many, etc., and you will enjoy, as I did, learning about his life, his inventions, the contradictions he presented as a man, and learning about his residence, which still stands (some slave quarters and all!) and can be toured to this day.

    "John F Kennedy was one of the most iconic and popular presidents of all time. I was looking answers on why Kennedy is considered the one of the greatest and this diffidently helps plead his case. "
