Following Faggot's lead (oh that sounds so wrong), a little something for our Canadian contingent.

Jean Chretien (1993 to present)
Kim Campbell (1993)
Brian Mulroney (1984 to 1993)
John Turner (1984)
Pierre Trudeau (1980 to 1984)
Joe Clark (1979 to 1980)
Pierre Trudeau (1968 to 1979)
Lester (Mike) Pearson (1963 to 1968)
John Diefenbaker (1957 to 1963)
Louis St. Laurent (1948 to 1957)
William Lyon Mackenzie King (1935 to 1948)
Richard B. Bennett (1930 to 1935)
William Lyon Mackenzie King (1926 to 1930)
Arthur Meighen (1926)
William Lyon Mackenzie King (1921 to 1926)
Arthur Meighen (1920 to 1921)
Sir Robert Borden (1911 to 1920)
Sir Wilfrid Laurier (1896 to 1911)
Sir Charles Tupper (1896)
Sir Mackenzie Bowell (1894 to 1896)
Sir John Thompson (1892 to 1894)
Sir John Abbott (1891 to 1892)
Sir John A. Macdonald (1878 to 1891)
Alexander Mackenzie (1873 to 1878)
Sir John A. Macdonald (1867 to 1873)

--When studying Canadian history, Mackenzie King was probably my favorite as far as what he did for our country but Trudeau's antics made him very entertaining.

Trudeau wins by sheer force of personality, even though many of his policies were horribly misguided. He basically destroyed the federal Liberal party west of Ontario in the late '70s, and it still hasn't recovered here. Plus, his economic decisions made the recession in the early 80s much worse than it should have been.

On the other hand, the Nixon White House despised him with a passion, which makes up for an economic downturn

Pearson really gave Canada an international presence, and won the Nobel peace prize ... he's gotta rank up there too.

Thank God that Mackenzie Bowell didn't run today. The 'Bowell Movement' jokes would get tired.

My picks agree with Gavin...Pearson or Trudeau.

Trudeau is a pimp. He gave Canada an identity that no other Prime Minister has ever done.

I think Jean Chretien is very underrated(maybe history will be more kind to him). He was given a horrible position after Mulroney sold the country out and was in some tough spots especially with Quebec. I think he did well with it... He was also someone who stood up for himself.

Kim Campbell, yikes. What a horrible way and situation to be the first female PM.

I agree on Chretien. He is totally underappreciated as the political force that he was. He's served the country well for 40 some-odd years, and done it with a personality I admire.

Dammit, I didn't KNOW they moved LOST to Channel 45 until 9:15! Now I gotta download THAT, too. At least "Apprentice: Martha" will be on CNBC fifteen more times before next show.
