I like this thread.

Newt Gingrich - Intelligent, but not Presidential; too partisan
Alexander Hamilton - Yes
Henry Clay - Yes
John C. Calhoun - A charismatic man and a great politician, but a horrible person
John McCain - 2000 version only
Bob Dole - lolno

That was really unnecessary.



Never heard of it.

There are probably more.

He was a Democrat that switched parties because of FDR's hostility to business. He and Landon couldn't really make distinguishable differences between themselves and the Democrats.

Yes, he was ancient by the time the presidentcy was established, but he would have been good at it.
