Author of The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt

Most overrated:

Charles Lindbergh. If he’d been less of a hunk—a small, sallow Greek, shall we say—would his ability to prop himself up on a joystick have been quite so celebrated?

Most underrated:

Gerald Ford. Unelected, laughed at, shot at, and unfairly denied the full term he deserved for ending the “national nightmare” of 1969-1974.
