First among equals

"The Founding Fathers—Jefferson, Adams, Madison, Hamilton, Franklin—have enjoyed a quasi-religious reverence in the United States to which there are few parallels in any other society. Floating above that circle of demigods is Washington, his name revered in a manner that almost transcends the limitations of a properly republican apotheosis." --The Economist

(See Washington in my recommended reading.)
