Keirsey typed Reagan and Clinton As Artisan Performers, This could be just me, but Artisans have the ability to take on a persona for the moment they are in, Bob Dylan is a great example of this,people thought he was this idealist folk singer, then he went electric,Madonna is another shapeshifter.

I don't think Keirsey knows anything about what he is talking about, much less an understanding of cognitive functions.
That sounds like comparing Obama's presidency to that of FDR. But are we talking about the US or any country? Theoretically any of the 16 types could be successful presidents, depending upon their skills, knowledge and decision making style, as well as the circumstances of the political environment in which they are in. However, defining success is often also a subjective matter of opinion.
With the political gridlock that is the US congress and it's lack of bipartisanship, I think it would be difficult, but not impossible, for a president of any type to change the direction of where the country is going.
