FDR was a good pres.
Can't deny that.
Haha, that's just funny. Tell me three positive things that Clinton did. BTW -- nice spelling of "coolest".
The topic is "influential," not "positive." That said I agree: Clinton wasn't exactly an Earth-shatteringly important man. Not in the way that, say Josef Stalin was. Negative as his impact on the world was it was unshakingly a huge one; he was at the helm of the Soviet militarism that more or less created the Cold War, overseeing the transition of the Soviet Union from a benign, undernourished wasteland to a leader in global politics (read: global scare tactics).
Anyone feel like disagreeing...?
I'd say unfortunately either Hitler or Stalin. I wish Eisenhower was more influence, he was a real president and if more had followed his example, the world would be a much better place.
Yeah, 'cause if you ever need someone to ignore Joseph McCarthy, there's no better man than Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Marshall and Truman most certainly caused McCarthyism to become a possibility. Eisenhower just ignored him.That's not honest I would shoulder more of the blame for McCarthyism on Truman.
It was ultimately McCarthy's accusations of Ike and the Army that got him censured.
