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.
