Jefferson was a Jacobin who was clueless about finance (no wonder he had to borrow money to go to his inauguration). Jackson was a mixed bag (have to love a guy who wanted to hang John Calhoun for even mentioning secession).

My faves: George Washington, Grover Cleveland, Calvin Coolidge, Ronad Reagan.

I am firmly convinced that Woodrow "League of Nations" Wilson was likely a sign from the antichrist.

As Presidents, I’ll concede, Jefferson and Jackson were mixed bags.

But Jefferson gets extra credit for his intellect, insight and wisdom outside of government, and Jackson (as I mentioned) for his destruction of the central bank. Great men both.

Cleveland and Coolidge are indeed among the elite.
