26. Charles W. Fairbanks
President: Theodore Roosevelt, 1905-1909
Charles W. Fairbanks was a dull, uninspiring politican whose naked ambition for the White House was the source of jokes among the press. The Nation, one of many periodicals that regularly ridiculed Fairbanks, quipped,"No public speaker can more quickly drive an audience to dispair." He is the namestake for Fairbanks, Alaska, however, so at least he has that.
