These are not the best presidents. Merely my favorites because of how interesting they were as political figures. Ranked chronologically.
- •George WashingtonThe founder. He set every precedent for every president. Maybe the single most important factor for the revolution succeeding. No one was more principled than him. Not only did he win the biggest and most ideologically motivated war ever, he also successfully brought balance to the Federalists and the anti-Federalists at the Constitutional Convention, whipping the Articles of Confederation into the Constitution. He also wrote a gentleman's guide to manners which is pretty dang funny.
- •Thomas JeffersonThomas Jefferson drove the movement that rejected a sovereign king during the Revolutionary War. Then, during his presidency he did the exact opposite by doubling the size of the US with the Louisiana Purchase without approval from congress. It was a total steal, Napoleon had no clue he was being outsmarted, and it made America what it is today. Totally worth it, right? Jefferson showed that if you break the rules, no one cares if everyone gets a piece of the pie (really the entire western US).
- •Abraham LincolnJohn Quincy Adams had the highest IQ of any president at around 164-170. Lincoln wasn't far behind at 140, pretty far above the average human. But, no other president could have saved the US from complete disintegration. He had the perfect demeanor, personality, intelligence, and character. The Emancipation Proclamation is one of the most brilliant works in political history. His reconstitution plan was generous and inclusive, revealing how devoted he was to the preservation of the Union.
