There have been, and still are, great debates over who is America’s greatest President. Greatness is of course subjective and depending upon ones view point or political bent, the “greatest” can and does vary widely.
Many would agree on George Washington or Abe Lincoln. But what about the greatest modern day President – from say 1900 to today. Narrowing the field brings forth the usual suspects like Franklin Roosevelt, John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan.
Yet practically no one would ever think to include our 30th President even in the top ten. They’d be wrong.
In my opinion Calvin Coolidge, Silent Cal, who served from 1923-1929, was in fact our modern era’s greatest President.
