If we can include people that never ran but should've, it would be: Eugene V. Debs, Norman Thomas, Robert M. La Follette, Henry A. Wallace, Wayne Morse, George McGovern, Ralph Nader, Paul Wellstone, Bernie Sanders, Hiram Johnson, and Barry Commoner.  Not necessarily in that order.  (though for me, Debs would still top the list).

Er, McGovern did run.
I didn't say that the list didn't include people who didn't run.  Though actually, I have some revisions to make for the list. The new and improved version:
Top 5 best Presidents that never were: Eugene V. Debs, Robert La Follette, Bobby Kennedy, Bernie Sanders, George McGovern.  (haven't figured out the order yet, and it's possible that I never will)

Honorable mentions: Norman Thomas, Ralph Nader, Paul Wellstone.

William Jennings Bryan. So much. Henry Clay and Colin Powell too. I'd be interested to see a MacArthur presidency. Oh, and Ross Perot wouldn't be a great president but he'd be a hilarious one.

As much as I admire McGovern (I'd gladly vote for him), I doubt he'd be a good President.

George was great as a legislator and as a spokesman for ideas. I don't see him as an executive type. Truth be told, he was just too good man to be President.

Memo to Ross: YOU GOT MAIL !!

LOL.

I don't understand the youth of today with their playpods and pierced scrotums and whatnot. However, one thing has remained the same over the years and that is apathy towards the political process
