Most of these aren't the best examples (especially the decidedly unsexy Cleveland. I have no idea where that came from), but I did as I was told.

Intelligent - Bill Clinton, his IQ is 186 and he is a Rhodes Scholar.  I would've said Woodrow Wilson if Wilson didn't act like a total f***ing idiot in foreign policy and ended up pissing off half of his own party by 1920.
Corrupt - Richard Nixon, for obvious reasons.  I would've said Warren Harding but that guy seemed too much like a dumb son of a bitch to win the award.
Charismatic - Andrew Jackson, why else are history teachers (regardless of grade or college) seem to love the sh*t out of him for some weird reason?
Leader - George Washington, despite a caucus (later a party) formed directly in opposition to his administration's policies he got re-elected.  Unanimously.
Honest - Grover Cleveland, he pissed off Tammany Hall AND the Free Silver crowd for chrissakes!  A man, especially a Democrat, has to be pretty damn honest to pull that off!
Liar - Ronald Reagan, because unlike Nixon he got away with it.
Sexy - John Kennedy, I don't know how it's even close (considering the competition).
Ugly - Lyndon Johnson, that man gives me nightmares.

I completely know what you mean. "Anything. Anything with Andrew Jackson would be a good topic for your paper". I doubt my teacher would like his policies at all if he were there, but for some reason, some strange weird, hormone driven fetish, God-knows-what, he loves the man. I wonder if the likes Thomas Jefferson more, or if ol' Tommy couldn't surpass the sexiness of Andrew Jackson. Hmmm...

Every US history teacher who actually gave a damn about the subject I've ever had seems to have some kind of affinity for the man.  That includes my crippled black teacher I had my Freshman year in college.
I mean granted Jackson wasn't just some guy who killed Indians like many people seem to think now days, but I don't think he's the presidential equivalent of The Rock like many US History textbooks and teachers preach incessantly about either.

Honest - Grover Cleveland, he pissed off Tammany Hall AND the Free Silver crowd for chrissakes!  A man, especially a Democrat, has to be pretty damn honest to pull that off!

I am a fan of Grover the Good, but his sinews as an "honest man" are severely tested by his 1893 secret operation on the Onedia. Cleveland did not even tell his own vice-president that he was going to undergo a dangerous surgery to remove cancer from his mouth. Even the famed Dr. W.W. Kean, a celebrated surgeon who was contracted to help with the operation, commented that such an operation could be dangerous and perhaps lead to Cleveland's death. Despite this risk, Cleveland would not even let his mustache be trimmed because he so wanted to cover-up the fact that he had undergone surgery. To make matters worse he allowed his administration to slander the journalist from Philadelphia who dared out the president's secret surgery. Cleveland never corrected the errors and it was not until 1916, eight years after Grover died, that Dr. Kean came clean on the affair and vindicated the brave journalist who dared expose the truth.

"Tell the truth,"- Stephen Grover Cleveland
