The best president was Theodore Roosevelt. The four qualifications that justify this are: military experience, effective communication skills, large support for environmental conservation, and his ability to accomplish major goals and legislation from the beginning to the end of his presidency. Roosevelt was not a perfect president, but for being the youngest president at the time, he served in many political and military positions that made him a brilliant leader and one of the best U.S. presidents. A president who has former military experience provides valuable insight to strategy and diplomacy. Being a highly decorated war hero and former Assistant Secretary to the Navy made Roosevelt a prime choice for a president with military experience.

Winston Churchill grew up to a very privileged life. Winston’s father Randolph Churchill was the very first duke of Marlborough and his mother was an american woman whose father was part owner of the New York Times. Winston himself was born just outside the city of Oxford in 1874.

Alexander the Great was a very determined individual who was going to do anything he had to do to prove his self or get what he wanted. Alexander the Great was a prehistoric Macedonian leader and is considered to be history’s greatest military minds who, as King of Macedonia and Persia established the largest kingdom the prehistoric world had ever seen. By turns captivating and ruthless, bright, and power hungry, ambassadorial, and bloodthirsty, Alexander inspired such faithfulness in his men that each man would follow him where ever he went and, if necessary, die in the process. Although Alexander the Great deceased before understanding his dream of bonding a new empire, his influence on Asian and Greek culture was so reflective it inspired a new historic era, the Hellenistic Period. (1) Alexanders personality was one of a kind especially because he came from a family of wealth and his father was a king leader.
In my opinion, Kurt Gerstein is certainly a man with many underlying contradictions but is still a valuable source for historians as he is a key eyewitness to the most evil event in history.

In his youth he was a devout Christian who often clashed with the Nazi Movement. He studied mining engineering and received a degree from the university in Marburg in 1931.

Our history of out country developing was very, very rocky. It took a lot of courageous people with a strong belief in independence and freedom to break away from one of the most powerful countries in America at that time. Strong leaders are elected her fairly and under the direction of a Republic, where people vote for representatives to decide what is best for our country. Throughout our entire history, presidents have done their best to improve our country the best ways they think they can. Despite all of this, and despite the fact I think all of our past presidents we're great, the one I believe was the best was our president, Barack Obama.

Reagan: The Most Influential Some people may think any of the 45 United States Presidents are corrupt politicians, that they are only trying to accomplish reelection or simply making them stand out in history. Although, there is one president who stood out amongst them all, who “was committed to absolute integrity. His trustworthiness was recognized by those he dealt with in Congress, in politics, and foreign leaders throughout the world” (Meese). That man is Ronald Reagan, aka. “The Great Communicator,” who, when listing the top presidents in American history, would be towards the top every time.
