Very interesting as I think most of the older Presidents should win out over their modern cousins.  Obviously the reason being that there was a lot more ground breaking work to be done when our country was so young.

Rd. 1 Who's the Best President of all Time

Wow Cleve!  Hundreds of albums from two different decades wasn't enough!?  A+ for effort my friend!

As for this particular vote - off, while I salute the uniqueness of the idea, I do not know enough about politics and past presidents to be able to cast meaningful votes on this topic.  Sorry.

Great job though!  It will be interesting to see if the Community agrees with the history books!

Here come my 80's album votes!
