Best Answer

Most Historians rank him close to the bottom of the list.

I think there's a lot of passion about Nixon. He's got good and bad points. His worst points were that he was a crook, statements to the contrary notwithstanding. He was good on foreign policy, he was decent on the economy. If Nixon would have had an honest bone in his body, he would rank as one of the best presidents ever. But he belonged in prison (something he has in common with a lot of other presidents), so I'd say he was probably right in the middle. I'd say FDR, Eisenhower, Lincoln, Washington and Kennedy were the five best presidents, Nixon was number 23, and the last three Republican presidents were at the absolute bottom.
