Rating: List Type:
He was faced with an obstructionist Congress, but his idea of having the federal government build libraries and infrastructure projects was well ahead of his time.
Lightning Francis's rating:
Rate:
He was an intelligent, charismatic, widely liked leader who was expected to serve two terms - until he was tragically assassinated. Does this sound familiar?
Lightning Francis's rating:
Rate:
He was an incompetent administrator, but he's not worthy of the bottom rung. He didn't do anything destructive. In fact, he fought against lynching, promoted womens health and helped the country readjust after a wartime economy.
Lightning Francis's rating:
Rate:
Average listal rating (38 ratings) 3.1 IMDB Rating 0
Compared to Reagan, he was more practical and intelligent. He was humble, mature and was bipartisan. People like him are sorely what our Congress is lacking today.
Lightning Francis's rating:
Rate:
For all his faults and mistakes, he was smart and pragmatic. He has environmental protection, diplomacy with China and detente among other accomplishments.
Lightning Francis's rating:
Rate:
After a slew of unimpactful presidents, McKinley readjusted many facets of policy and administration akin to how later 20th century presidents conducted them. After being assassinated, Roosevelt overshadowed him.
Lightning Francis's rating:
Rate:
Average listal rating (17 ratings) 5.9 IMDB Rating 0
The only president in the past 50 years to not bomb a country. That's a major accomplishment in itself. His concern for energy conservation and humanitarianism was far ahead of his time.
Lightning Francis's rating:
Rate:
With possible exception to Lincoln, no other president in the 19th century was more dedicated toward the civil rights of African Americans than he was.
Lightning Francis's rating:
Rate:
The image of him being a lazy old-fashioned do-nothing is far from accurate. In the face of the Great Depression, which he inherited, he intervened in the economy more than any president before him.
Lightning Francis's rating:
Rate:
Following up George Washington was no easy task, but Adams built up the navy the country needed to protect itself. When a military conflict with France arose, he negotiated peace. He was also the only founder who didn't own slaves.
Lightning Francis's rating:
Rate:

1) This list is my personal opinion only.

2) I tried to be as non-partisan as possible by including a balance of both liberal and conservative presidents.

3) Underrated doesn't mean good. It's possible for a president to be mediocre, but still not as bad as they're claimed to be.
