John Quincy Adams was President of the United States during the early 19th century.

He was considered one of the most intelligent Presidents, but he was too stubborn to build any sort of reasonable coalition.[1][2]

Notes and references

  1. "Does it concern you that the smartest Presidents have been the worst?" "John Quincy Adams was so full of himself, he could hardly build a coalition around having eggs for breakfast." from The U.S. Poet Laureate
  2. The above quote was actually from the character Ainsley Hayes in discussion with Sam Seaborn.
