I wonder what you would think about Washington, because he is candidate for my personal Top 20. No-one has ever mentioned him so far. I appreciated him a lot when jumping from Monarch to Imm (took a step back to Emp later, when i lost too often), because his attributes seemed to neutralize all the unpleasant health & happiness issues that a player suddenly faces on a higher level. So a very convenient leader. Also he is perfect for Isolation (one of the best I think, including the FISH start) what can also happen on fractal maps. Last but not least, his EXP trait is quite versatile when it comes to constructing a granary in a low-hammer city (coastal, floodplains) while keeping the health up high when growing bigger. So in certain surroundings maybe even equal to Lincoln, imo. Edit: another advantage is that you can trade more resources for Gold and relief your economy. it happens regularly, that AIs only need the kind of resource you cannot afford to give away. With exp + cha, this won't probably happen.
