I am currently reading the autobiography of my new presidential hero, Calvin Coolidge. He had a hard life, but probably had more integrity than nearly all of our current politicians combined. He was named after his father, John Calvin Coolidge, and he named his two sons John and Calvin. Talk about some serious Puritan roots.
This is what he said about the presidency:
"It is a great advantage to a President, and a major source of safety to the country, for him to know that he is not a great man. "
Now if we could only get more politicians like that, I wouldn't mind having a few more around.
