Worst President in History?

Rolling Stone's Sean Wilentz asks if Bush is The Worst President in History?
(Maclean's has a more conservative question.)
I like the following excerpt because it articulately describes what I perceive as one of the biggest problems in the world.

"...[Bush] has also displayed a weakness common among the greatest presidential failures -- an unswerving adherence to a simplistic ideology that abjures deviation from dogma as heresy, thus preventing any pragmatic adjustment to changing realities."

That pretty much covers it. But it isn't like the Democrates offer a real alternative. The elections every 4 years have been reduced to a spectacle to give the American Presidency a democratic feel. No wonder the number of people who voted in the last presidental election is on the same order of magnitude as the people who vote in the final round of the last American Idol. It is all entertainment.
