<![CDATA[The Greatest Minds of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/greatest-minds-of-all-time/walter-graves
List of the Greatest Minds of All Time, throughout history. This list represents the most influential thinkers across various disciplines, ranked in a way that represents the power of their ideas and their impact on the world. The wisest men and women include top philosophers, physicists, famous poets, thinkers, teachers, physiologists, artists, inventors, engineers, the most irreplaceable CEOs in the world, economists and politicians and those whose talents span across many fields of study.

This list takes a historic perspective, so the greatest thinkers who are included on this list come from many different eras. The greatest minds of the 21st century may be quite different from great geniuses from the distant past, but each person should be judged within the context of the time that they were living. For example, inventing a new type of telephone in 2013 would not qualify one as "the most brilliant mind of all time," but in 1876 when Alexander Graham Bell first patented the telephone, it was an act of genius not seen before.

<![CDATA[The Worst U.S. Presidents]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-10-worst-u-s-presidents
The worst U.S. presidents of all time, measured by their negative impact on the nation, its citizens health and happiness, and its future prosperity. (In some cases – such as the popular selections of Warren G. Harding and Richard Nixon – the negative view of the president and his administration is due to various scandals and perceived corruption within its ranks. Nixon, of course, remains the only president to step down from the office amidst threats of impeachment.)

Much of a president's job – including serving as the figurative head of the American state and setting the nation's general legislative and diplomatic agenda – is sort of intangible and hard to evaluate in strict "good vs. bad" terms. This makes any list of the "best" or "worst" US presidents essentially subjective, and though there were administrations with a significant series of positive or negative outcomes, it's rarely clear just how much these had to do with the person in office and how many were simply due to accidents of fate or circumstance. Nonetheless, in particularly extraordinary cases – such as the administration of Abraham Lincoln, which kept the nation intact during the Civil War crisis, or the administration of Andrew Johnson immediately after that threatened the entire success of the Reconstruction project – it is clear which presidents did an overall good or bad job.

So who were the worst presidents of all time? We're ranking them here, based on your votes! When you've had enough political negativity, be sure to check out Ranker's ultimate uplifting presidential list: The Best US Presidents.

<![CDATA[The Best U.S. Presidents in the Past 50 Years]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-u-s-presidents-in-the-past-50-years
Who are the best U.S. presidents of the past 50 years? The presidents listed here are among the greatest leaders of the free world in modern history and are some of the best recent presidents. The men listed here are those who served as president since the early 1960s, so while Teddy Roosevelt and Dwight D. Eisenhower might have been excellent, they don't count -- at least, as far as this list is concerned. You can always go vote for these presidents (and more) on this list of the overall greatest U.S. presidents of all time.

What specific qualities determine whether a POTUS was great or not-so-hot? Factors to consider may vary and will often depend on your particular political affiliation. Certainly, voting on any good or bad list where a president is concerned is subjective.

Commitment to the betterment of the United States, an ability to lead under difficult or trying circumstances, and great character are just a few of the qualities people might consider when deciding on the president they think was the best. Over the past 50 years, 10 men have served as president -- some of them served for just one term and others served two full terms in office. Of these, only one can be top. . . so get voting!

If you're curious, you might want to see if any of the presidents listed here also appear on this list of the worst U.S. presidents of all time.
