Has someone hacked into PB's account? Surely he wouldn't rank his hero the only the 9th best in this century

I can not rank him #1, I once ranked him as #5, but I have to listen to the actual lessons of history, not mt personal partisanship to my hero.

Well, although Hoover did try to end the Great Depression, to say he was our greatest President would be wrong.

He is:

Our kindest President.

Our smartest president.

The President with the biggest heart.

The most honest president.

The most athletic President next to TR. (Hooverball is a grueling game)

The hardest working President.
