I'm writing my thesis at Algoma, and I just wanted to run a quick poll.. You might be surprised at the question, but...

Who was the better president?

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, 35th president


Richard Milhous Nixon, 37th president

I'd also be interested to hear reasons.. Thanks for the help!

- Began the Viet Nam war
- Worsened the cold war and brought the world to 'the brink' (Bay of Pigs)

- Ended the Viet Nam war
- Initiated diplomatic relations with China (Ping Pong Diplomacy)

Quite a few other examples, but my hat is off to Nixon - always has been. I don't believe either man should be judged on the demise of his presidency, but on the results of their term.
