He made my top five. His political contributions were huge, but what made him beloved was his personality. Have you ever listened to his speeches? He was inspiring and bonding at a pretty scary time (cold war / nukes) in our history.

I was a teenager when he was president and we loved him then. He was what I would consider the last hero we've had in the whitehouse. We could use another one.

If I had to chose a few that might be worth the title I would probably go for someone like Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin or Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. If it has to be a "cultural" icon, then why not Elvis, John Wayne or even Elmer Fudd?

We all get some unexpected entries. In the 100 Greatest Britons we had David Beckham at #33 (higher than Charles Dickens!), Michael Crawford at #17 (higher than Sir Alexander Fleming!) and Princess Diana at #3 if you can believe it (higher than Darwin, Shakespeare and Newton!!). No logic in any of it.
I know dude, it makes us brits look like we are not capable of taking surveys seriously.

BTW - Greatest American = Animal from the Muppets.

I wouldn't have voted for a president, I personally think they are all crooks in one way or another. I would think the Greatest were inventers Alexander Bell, Ben Franklin, and what about Bill Gates. IMO These folks really changed our world a lot more than any president.
