When was the last time we had a president that was openly called a leader?

"Legacy" is a word thrown about a lot but not really understood. The Prez has little power on his own, congress has to be dealt with.
What REALLY defines a president though and congress by extension? It's the Constitution and who is entrusted with it.

While not precisely answering your question of "What is a president's greatest legacy?", I think the most important thing which people have lost the desire to recognize is that most presidential legacies are not seen materialized for many years, decades even, after they have left. Very, very few leave office with a real legacy in hand.
