We could do a lot worse than Calvin Coolidge. When it came to the U.S. economy, he pretty much just let it run itself. The stock market boomed and prosperity spread.
When asked why he never turned down an invitation to any function of any kind, Cal replied, “Well, a man’s got to eat.”
His White House staff was miniscule. Coolidge was a caretaker President and knew his limitations, including a second term, which he turned down in 1928.
We could do a lot worse than Silent Cal and we already have, IMO.

Actually it is hard to do better. Three times, perhaps four. But he is definitely in my top five.
