5. Beto O’Rourke
A congressman who is also a member of the BeyHive? Sure, he’s got our vote.
4. Joe Biden
Still benefiting from the halo effect of being Barack’s right-hand man (who could forget the hilarious meme trend in which he was depicted as Obama’s uncouth crony?), Uncle Joe may be part of another historic ticket now that he’s tapped a Black woman, Kamala Harris, as his own vice presidential nominee.
3. Bernie Sanders
While the White House may sadly never Feel the Bern, this decades-long firebrand and Killer Mike bestie sought to overhaul the country for the better. Even at 78 years old, he’s liable to pop up on the next Cardi B album.
2. John F. Kennedy

1. Lyndon B. Johnson
On one hand, the Texan was an infamous A-hole who exposed himself to colleagues. But on the other, the Civil Rights Act! Cookout invite enshrined.
