Who's your favorite president and why? Mine are Abraham Lincoln, for fighting and winning the Civil War and being the Great Emancipator; Franklin Delano Roosevelt, for establishing America's (still far-too-small) social safety net; and Barack Obama, for bringing the nation light-years forward on issues of LGBT equality.
