Bill Clinton cracks top 10 in rankings of presidents; Obama sits 18th (poll)


Bill Clinton was impeached during his second term but enjoyed favorable approval ratings (66 percent) when he left office in January 2001.
Clinton's popularity has improved since he left office and it apparently has paid off with political scientists as well as he was ranked the eighth greatest president in U.S. history in a survey of 162 members of the American Political Science Association.
It is the first time Clinton has cracked the top 10 in a poll. In 2010 he finished 13th and 2011 he was 19th in two other surveys, reports Yahoo! News.
Another first-timer in the top 10 is Dwight Eisenhower, who was ranked seventh...
No. 1 was Abraham Lincoln, followed by George Washington and Franklin D. Roosevelt. The rest of the top 10 are Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, Harry S. Truman, Eisenhower, Clinton, Andrew Jackson and Woodrow Wilson.
