Is it too late to add Boaty McBoatface, the governing official for which the vessel was named?

Well if kings are allowed, it got to be Edward III on this list.
Medieval Kings had to display personal martial ability to hang on to their thrones. And Eddie three was a warrior of some renown. I feel he could beat everyone else on the list without really trying….

Wellington? He was Prime Minister for a time but President???

JFK had his PT Boat run down by a slower Japanese destroyer than PT-109. (I'm assuming his name comes up tomorrow.)
Bush the Elder has his plane shot down by the Japanese.
I would rather vote for proven victorious generals like Grant, Washington and Eisenhower. Ok. Ok. Zachary Taylor.
Grover Cleveland paid a substitute to take his place in the ACW.
Garfield served in the Civil War, achieving the rank of Major General.

This is what the "this is ridiculous" choice was made for. The title of this poll should be, Which LEADER was the most badass.

If we are only talking presidents then here is my list of the most badass Presidents. Not in any particular order.

I know it isn't PC but I do hope Jefferson Davis shows up in a future round (or did I miss him?). He was a badass during the Battle of Monterey, commanding the Mississippi Rifles. Was offered a battlefield commission to Brigadier General and yes he was an American President as was Sam Houston.

"Other". I second T.R. Remember San Juan Hill and the Great White Fleet.
