I thought it would be interesting to see what the opposite political party thought was the best president ever of the opposing party- so example if you are a Democrat, name the best Republican President ever and if you are a Democrat, name the best Republican President ever. Feel free to explain why. Don't name your OWN party's presidents.

If you think ALL Republican or ALL Democrat presidents were bad, then the lesser of the evils.
