    I don't know if he's a horrible human being, but I do think he'll be ranked as one of the worst presidents ever.

    When viewed through the lens of history, his response to 9/11 will not look very good.

    His decision to invade Iraq will be rightly viewed as nonsensical. His failure to provide any sort of mission-specific exit strategy will be mocked incredulously. And his insistence on staying long after any possible good could happen will be seen as bordering on delusional.

    He certainly will look better than LBJ when judged in history.

    Webb is going to be fun to watch. No one will push him around from either party. He has always been a renegade.

    You've gotta be kidding me.

    Even if Vietnam was Johnson's Iraq, his domestic policies alone rate him way higher than Fredo--whose idea of domestic policy is favouring daddy's friends.

    Yeah, Johnson's domestic policies ushered in an unprecedented era of prosperity. That's why every subsequent president dismantled them a few at a time -- capped by Clinton, who imploded the last remaining shards of the Great Society.

    Bush may be doing a terrible job, but let's not let his incompetence blind us to Johnson's.

    At least Hitler was good before he went too far.

    Bush, eh, not so much.

    Marge Schott had a zen-like wisdom about her, you gotta admit.

    Good Lord, Rip Van Wingman is back. :)

    Well at least there's an intelligent member of the right wing on here now.

    I was afraid that we were stuck with Old Tony, Lyman and the Ilk.
