An interesting link for this topic -
I find it interesting that presidents that are regarded by historians as amongst the very worst top both your lists.
Historians usually attribute anything that happens during a president's tenure as a benefit or bane for them. There is almost no context to their rankings in regards of creating policies that have good or bad effects on the country over a significant period of time.
For example, Hoover is ranked very low for starting the depression, while FDR ranks very high for 'ending' it. Although the reality is that FDR didn't fix it, Bretton Woods did.
If you take a real objective view of policies created by presidents and the long-term view of our country, the list would be much different. Most historians have a very narrow view of presidents.. Read a few biographies. They are inundated with a chosen few.
Back from the dead, I'm afraid.
