Since we are constantly bombarded by presidential rankings that are never objective and are entirely partisan, I decided it was time for me to tackle this task once and for all. I’ve read enough history to have the ability to do this (and will research any knowledge gaps along the way), and I can be reasonably objective in the manner in which I grade their individual effectiveness and performances.
To grade each president I will consider the following criteria (scores graded from 1-5 with 5 the highest):
- Foreign Policy
- Domestic Policy
- Crisis Management
- Enduring Accomplishments
- Adherence to Constitution and American principles
- Overall Legacy
