Bush: bad president, or worst president?

When Bush won in 2004, I told a few close friends that there was a single small, silver lining: Had he lost, Bush would have been canonized by the right. But having won, Bush's mistakes would catch up to him, and he would go down in history as the worst president ever.

The Washington Post recently published five op-eds asking this very question
. I love the fact that in a sort of reverse Stephen Colbert moment, the consensus is somewhere between "Yes, worst ever" and "No, just fifth worst".
