Most likely number 2 after George Washington. Some say he is better than Washington, but I don’t think that at all.

Nope bottom 10. Tyrant who ran with power amok.

I don't see how anybody can put any president ahead of Washington. Washington literally invented the office. He set precedent fore every president that followed him. And having done that he stepped aside and established the practice of peaceful and orderly succession. I would go so far as to say that without Washington as our first president then I don't know if our government would have lasted long enough for a fifth or sixth president, much less a sixteenth.

No, I think we can argue about who is number two as far as presidents go. But number one belongs to Washington and always will.
