Who was/is a better President?

Who will history look back on and smile? Bush is Bush Jr. not the old man.

I think it's too early to tell with all these guys -- particularly Obama. The man's not halfway through his first term.

IMHO, GWB will be at least partially rehabilitated in the foreign policy department. Iraq won't ever be seen as a well-planned, well-thought-out war, but it won't be seen as the unmitigated disaster it was in 2007-2008. A type of democracy we can live with will form there.

Similarly, Clinton's presidency won't look as rosy in retrospect. The era of prosperity we had during his tenure had a high price tag later on.

Reagan seems to have been judged as the president who won the Cold War, so he'll probably come out looking the best (at least, in the near term).

Didn't Bush say that Iraq was the new Vietnam? I hope not because it means were in for some pretty crap movies in ten years time probably starring the resident loony Tom cruise.

For me on this side of the pond, I have voted Clinton mostly due to the fact that he was an excellent economist.

You can always tell how popular a US President is in England by the state visit.

When Kennedy came to England in the 60's, the masses turned out to cheer him.
Clinton... The masses turned out to cheer him.
George Bush... The masses turned out to hurl abuse at him.
Obama at the G20 Summit in London... a few hundred turned out but only to throw rocks at the British Prime Minister. Obama went un-noticed.

We are waiting for the 45th president of the United States, Sarah Pallin to visit.

I would not want Palin to run. That would be a disaster I would rather vote for Hillary.

I can't imagine that Palin will run in 2012. I think she gave up all hope of that when she abandoned the governor's seat. Maybe by 2016 she would be able to run, but she's actually got to do something in the meantime to show she's a serious contender.

I won't say anything against Obama...he is just starting, though he has been in the position quite long...I'm just thinking that he still has a lot of time to make the best of his term..
