CDIS 86 Our Least Competent Presidents

Historians and political scientists enjoy debating who was our best President, or who had the best foreign policy or domestic agenda. But historian Gary Midkiff will guide you on a tour of the other end of the spectrum to analyze and explain why men such as James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, Franklin Pierce are always rated at the bottom. Each was a competent person with a solid political background who failed as President. We will look at the 12 (of our past 43) Presidents rated lowest by C-Span and try to understand their mistakes.
