re: Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power (Posted on 12/10/12 at 3:50 pm to NimbleCat)
Actually, I think Clinton and Jefferson are a great comp, as TJ never found a political issue he couldn't eloquently take both sides of. The reason so many people like to quote him is the Jefferson often found himself on every possible side of the issues of the day. He was politically malleable.
Slick Willie had nothing on Jefferson when it came to always being on the popular side of an argument.
