(had to post this somewhere...) Yes, of the 44 US Presidents: Obama rated 5th best president ever! The Democratic Party publicity release said, "...after a little more than four years, Americans have rated President Obama the 5th best president ever." The details according to White House Publicists read like this. * Reagan, Lincoln, and 8 others tied for first. * 15 presidents tied for second. * 17 other presidents tied for third. * Jimmy Carter came in 4th. * Obama came in fifth.
