Best/Worst Presidents

I've been watching the History Channel a lot this week on their special highlighting all 47 Presidents we've had. It calls itself the "ultimate guide" to the Presidents, but it's mostly a great primer on all the Presidents.

Anyway, it's been a while since we've done this.

But who are the best 5 Presidents in American history in your opinion, and who were 5 of the worst? Do your best to explain.

Also, where would you place our most recent Presidents (because why not): Obama, Bush II, Clinton, Bush I, Reagan, Carter

It's nearly impossible to compare presidents from different eras.

I think the modern presidency begins with FDR, and he's been the best. Dwight Eisenhower and George H.W. Bush were also great.

What secret government baby-killing agency was Coolidge responsible for?
