Best Answer

Judgments of best and worst are subjective, of course, but many historians would agree on James Buchanan. He took absolutely no action when the Southern states started seceding from the Union after the election of 1860 instead of at least trying to prevent the Civil War.

Grant and Harding are two other contenders. Millard Fillmore also ranks near the bottom.
