Not at all. Jefferson was an underhanded sneak and a disaster as President. His only notable achievements were having Louisiana handed to him (he didn't believe its purchase was constitutional) and the Lewis and Clark expendition. Jefferson was the era's greatest rhetoritician but was clueless about the Constitution. Thank God he was out of the country during its writing and ratification as I am sure he would have opposed it.
If there was a bigger hypocrit in American history I haven't heard of him.
You know, I got the same impression from reading the bio of John Adams.
