    Vote for president.

    Also, since you have been born, who do you think has been the best president in your lifetime?

    Biden like above, less bad. Best president of my lifetime as far as doing the job was Kennedy. Of the presidents during my life who was the best as a person but not as head of state, Carter.

    I'm not based in America so I won't vote.

    The left vs right paradigm is quite strong in America. It is more of a distraction IMO. Whether it is Biden or Trump is irrelevant. The differences between the two candidates/two parties are merely cosmetic.

    The same fundamental issues will continue to persist.

    This vote is equivalent to pick your poison.

    I voted for Biden on Tuesday. In my lifetime Obama was the best president, although I greatly appreciate Bill Clinton as well. I've been wanting Biden to be our next president since 2017 and we are so close to making that happen! I even wore my Biden socks to cast my vote!

    Biden doesn't really excite me at all; I would prefer a Bernie or a Warren. But Trump is awful on so many levels and has to be stopped. I sent my mail-in ballot on Monday.

    Best president in my fairly young life? Probably Obama.

    Any one stressed at how terrible our two choices? I am too young and thankful for that, but my parents are super stressed.

    I foresee Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson running for president one day.

    Try to focus on the things you have control over. All this politics is just a complete circus. Way beyond my control. This should reduce stress. I mean you could join a political group that supports your thinking if really into that.

    I voted straight-ticket Democratic via absentee ballot. Best president of my lifetime was Bill Clinton.

    Biden (Not my first choice, I would have preferred Warren or Buttigieg, but he's leagues better than Trump). Anything to get Trump out of office.

    I was born during Clinton's administration so I was too young to actually remember his presidency. That being said, I do like the Clintons as a couple since I can't really comment on Bill's presidency.

    I personally think Obama was the best president so far of my lifetime.

    Bush wasn't great, but I'd still take him back over Donald Trump any day.

    I think Obama was the best combination of policy, integrity, empathy, intelligence, and accomplishments. Carter is a pretty close second, though he inherited a pretty shitty situation.

    I voted for Biden, even though I kinda hate him. He's the living embodiment of the useless establishment who has had 40 years in high powered positions but has done almost nothing helpful during that time. I'm sympathetic to the new politicians because they really can't do much with higher powered ones making the real decisions, but after 40 years including being vice president, c'mon there's no excuse for that anymore.

    Trump is just crazy. If he were a normal sane person and had the same policies I would have been a lot more likely to vote for him, but the blatant insanity and pathological lying makes him too unstable to vote for regardless of anything else.

    For best president overall, I would pick Eisenhower. He was a principled and duty-driven guy who showed a willingness to heavily risk his own life for his country countless times as a military officer, and then highest ranking general (as in, top priority assassination target) who strengthened the country for decades with his infrastructure projects and created some of the biggest things we still use (the entire interstate system was his creation) yet also had a lot of kindness and thought put into his policies. Real kindness, not the fake self-serving stuff modern politicians have.

    In my lifetime, I think they all kinda suck, but overall I'd pick Obama because he managed to not have any scandals and was good at diplomacy. Clinton had a scandal, Bush started a war over his lack of diplomacy skills, and Trump is psychotic so...not much competition there.

    I think Obama is the best president we've had in my lifetime. I think Carter is the best person to be elected president in my lifetime..
