Ivan Eland continues his series on the worst presidents in American history. His analysis is based upon whether the president adhered to constitutional values and kept the country out of wars. Based on this criteria, the all time worst president is Woodrow Wilson. Wilson got the US into WWI which led to WWII and our current problems in the Mideast. He also helped create the military industrial complex, the Federal Reserve and the income tax. It's hard to think of a president who caused more damage and harm to the republic than Wilson, but there are others who inflicted much harm and much pain.
