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...

Hmmm. I'm gonna have to come back to this one. I'm torn.

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.

Totally agree

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.
