If you were to venture a guess; In 3 years (2011) who would win a "worst American president off all time" poll?

Typically Jimmy Carter wins hands down every time, but more and more people are becoming aware of Woodrow Wilson (started the fed, or "central bank").

Bush 43 was neck n neck with Carter a few months ago, but now that the lame-stream media has backed off, he's dropping from the national radar.

With the recent flap about FDR's policies actually worsening the great depression, a few diverted their vote to him, but not in great numbers.

The first black president (Clinton, not Obama) now seems more like a circus clown act, so he's increasingly marginalized as something less than a real president, and more just a guy who provided entertainment while the real power brokers pulled his strings.

Which brings us to the current administration, whose popularity poll numbers are dropping precipitously. Which is the reason I asked for a future projection 3 years out. Since deficit spending won't solve problems caused by deficit spending, is 3 years enough time for his rabid supporters to realize they've been had? Or will his charisma and chutzpah still be keeping the dogs at bay? How much failure is enough before the sea of public education indoctrinates begin to understand they've been brainwashed.

What's your projection, in 3 years who will the nation see as the "worst president of all time"?
Update: A couple of well-informed respondents mentioned Lincoln. Very good! America's first dictator (signed the first executive order bypassing congress [and the rule of law]). Will Lincoln be seen for the tyrant he was in 3 years?
