The Presidential Rankings Game

In a rather weak and undistinguished effort, C-SPAN offers an update of a presidential ranking it last performed nine years ago in C-SPAN 2009 Historians Presidential Leadership Survey. It’s a predictably conventional and rather obtuse assessment from this group of “historians” and so-called “professional observers of the presidency.” At least they get Lincoln (first) and Buchanan (last) right. In between, they’ve also dropped Wilson three places and Johnson one, while raising Grant by ten. These are improvements, but not by enough to make this anything more than a pedestrian effort.
