2 Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln was the 16th President of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865 . Lincoln led the United States through its Civil War - its bloodiest war and its greatest moral, constitutional, and political crisis .

This list doesn't make any sense. By reading the name, I inferred that you meant that you would be listing people who are normally hated, but do not deserve all of the hate. To put it into simpler terms, "Underrated." But, you just listed a bunch of people that Americans love, which makes no sense, because there are tons of lists about the best people of all time, and the best Americans of all time. This is just a copy of those lists. - Alpha101

4 Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement.

Why anyone would hate this man is beyond me. He was hands down the best civil rights leader in American history--and a peaceful one at that, he was an extremely well educated man, and even a great pastor! When you look at his life and see all the positive things he has done it is hard to think that people could hate him.
But alas there will always be bigotry and hate among men. Simply because people who are like MLK are outspoken and fight for what is right even when others were angry about it.
Very admirable very courageous.

5 John F. Kennedy John F. Kennedy John Fitzgerald "Jack" Kennedy, commonly referred to by his initials JFK, was an American politician who served as the 35th President of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination in November 1963. The Cuban Missile Crisis, The Bay of Pigs Invasion, the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, the ...read more.

We don't know the whole story. Link with the Maffia, scandal with Marilyn Monroe... Someone killed him for a reason we will never know. Maybe he was not a saint after all.

JFK saved the world. He stopped many nuke operations and peacefully negotiated with the USSR.

6 Ronald Reagan Ronald Reagan Ronald Wilson Reagan was an American politician and actor who was 40th President of the United States from 1981 to 1989 . Prior to his presidency, he was the 33rd Governor of California from 1967 to 1975, following a career as a Hollywood actor and union leader .

Democrats continue to pretend that the president can and should be Santa Claus, spending other people's money like there is no tomorrow. Reagan showed the president can and should be a leader.

Actually, I will say this is accurate, even though I am a Democrat. Reagan's policies were God awful, and we still haven't fully recovered, but he was a very likable person.

Come on, one of the worst on political matters. Neo-liberalism at his worst. Because of his political views he created together with British prime minister Margaret Tatcher a disaster that was felt many years after ( stock exchange scandals in the 21st century, corruption on high levels... ). Doesn't belong here ' cause we still feel his wrong policies now and we are still recovering by paying the price.

Reagan was the Greatest president. He did wonders for this country.

7 Thomas Jefferson Thomas Jefferson Thomas Jefferson was an American Founding Father who was principal author of the Declaration of Independence.
8 Bill Clinton Bill Clinton William Jefferson Clinton was the 42nd President of the United States . He previously served as governor of Arkansas . He became president after unseating incumbent president, George H . W Bush in 1992 . He was re-elected in 1996 after defeating Senator Bob Dole .
9 Paul Revere Paul Revere Paul Revere was an American silversmith, engraver, early industrialist, and a Patriot in the American Revolution.
10 Theodore Roosevelt Theodore Roosevelt Theodore Roosevelt was an American statesman, author, explorer, soldier, naturalist, and reformer who served as the 26th President of the United States from 1901 to 1909.
