But overall, my favorite president is William Henry Harrison. He keeled over shortly after his inauguration.
-Lew Rockwell: "Down with the Presidency"
Calvin Coolidge finished up the return to normalcy started by Harding, John Tyler vetoed the creation of a new bank, Martin van Buren avoided sectional conflict and presided over a time of sound money, Thomas Jefferson because he is Thomas Jefferson, George Washington for reasons already mentioned, Grover Cleveland who cleaned out corruption, promoted free trade and advocated sound money and Andrew Jackson who killed the bank. My favorite presidents.
