The worst presidents

The Times of London gives us, yet again, a list of the best and worst among US presidents in history. Starting with the worst:

1. James Buchanan

2. Frankilin Pierce

3. Martin Van Buren

4. William Harrison

5. (TIE) Richard Nixon and George W. Bush

Personally, I wouldn't have included Harrison (with only 32 days in office, there's only so much he could do) and Nixon, while a totally screwed-up human being, had skills in foreign policy. Thus, as I figure it, G.W. Bush is the fourth-worst American president ever.
