This may sound really weird to you guys. But I'm just wondering who you guys think would be a better President if they were alive today? George Washington or Abraham Lincoln?

Let me know what you think...

This requires no thought at all - George Washington. I'm not a big fan of Abraham Lincoln.

If only I could combine some traits from the two. In the end, however, Washington gets my vote.

I am not sure this would make a difference in my vote, but I could ask whether we are talking about Lincoln before or after his conversion. Washington, imho, was a better President than ex-President in which his meddling caused many problems for his successors and I would tend to vote for Washington but I do believe that Lincoln offered many merits as well. I just would not want Washington's post-presidency nor Lincoln's pre-conversion.

Hey guys,

If it was up to me, I think I would have to go with Washington!

I actually found a website that is doing this big discussion on this topic called www.nowdebatethis.com.

You should check it out! It's cool to see people's responses.
