Over a period of decades, C-SPAN has surveyed leading historians on the best and worst of America's presidents across a variety of categories—their ability to persuade the public, their leadership skills, their moral authority, and more. The crucible of the presidency has forged some of the very best and very worst leaders in our national history, along with many in between. From Abraham Lincoln's political savvy and rhetorical gifts to James Buchanan's indecisiveness, The Presidents teaches much about what makes a great leader—and what does not.
What lessons can we learn from America's past presidents? Can these lessons help us choose the next one wisely?
Brian Lamb is the founder, executive chairman, and now-retired CEO of C-SPAN Networks.
