The Best and Worst U.S. Presidents (2002)


best-and-worst“I honesty think that they all come in with the best of intention but something happens on the way to the forum.” – Helen Thomas

Number of Times Seen – 1 (30 Nov 2016)

Brief Synopsis – Of the 43 Presidents (as of 2002), this is an in-depth look at the best of worst of the great men who have lived in the White House

My Take on it – As a fan of the history of the Presidency of the US, I was so happy to come across this film.

The information provided here is very minimal and I’m sure hours upon hours of information could be used to show (and even debate) this list over and over if they wanted it to be even more comprehensive.

I really loved the way that they chose a very diverse panel of experts to discuss and debate the issues for and against each of these 15 great men depicted on these lists.

The information provided was so interesting to watch because it added additional layers of information about these men and their impacts on history.

Their legacies have all been made part of the history of the US and it was great to see what actions (o in-actions) of these men put them on either of these lists.

Bottom Line – Loved the diverse panel of experts used to discuss the best and worst of these great men.  As a fan of the history of the Presidency, this was so much fun to watch and absorb the information that they share with us. Definitely a must watch for those who wish to see what kind of actions some of these men took or missed out on that will forever remain part of theior legacies. Highly Recommended!
