I don't have to agree with all his policies. I will admit that he was a liberal spender.

Bill Clinton was way underrated while he was in office (not anymore). Can you believe we tried to impeach the best president that we had in decades?

Shame most Americans don't even know who this great man was.
Would have been tough for him to seek reelection considering that his health was ruined by the end of his first term and he was dead three months later.

They Might be Giants did a nice song about him. That kind of thing doesn't happen too often...

I believe Polk would have honored his promise to not seek reelection regardless of health. He was one of the few Presidents that was not an egomaniac

If you were born out west or in the American southwest (as I was) you have Polk to thank for you citizenship.

Teddy Roosevelt, the man we need now. way underrated. We need Teddy to walk into Washington, throw all the lobbyists out on their @ss and rebuild the country the way it needs to, from the ground up with honest, hard work.

most overrated - JFK. it's not close.
