defend the right to be in history heaven of presidents
Assume you die and go to a special heaven reserved for historians. (This essay requires a leap of faith!) Upon arrival, you are summoned before the history judges and told that whether you can stay depends on how well you defend the right to be in History Heaven of Presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump. Make the case. (Remember that any good defense anticipates the points that will be raised in opposition and deals with them.) While you MUST argue that all of them should be there, you MUST also rank them in terms of most deserving to least deserving of a spot. Your answer should address, where relevant, each President as a person (e.g., his character), and his approaches to domestic policy; foreign policy; national security; and party politics.
