Barack Obama Ranked 12th Best President Of All Time
Barack Obama is officially done with his job as President of the United States but Historians are not forgetting him and are ranking him among the 43 before him.
C-SPAN gathered a group of historians to rank all of the Presidents. Barack Obama landed just outside of the top 10 which was occupied by Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Theodore Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower, Harry S. Truman, Thomas Jefferson, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan and Lyndon Baines Johnson with Woodrow Wilson coming in at 11th.
The Presidents were judged on merits including public persuasion, crisis leadership, economic management and moral authority. Obama received his highest marks for pursuing equal justice for all and scored lowest for relations with Congress, which was majority Republican and petty for most of his tenure.
