Scholars often speak of Calvin Coolidge in unflattering terms. He is referred to as "a figurehead president," as having had "no drive," as having been a "do nothing president," as a president "almost totally deficient in powers of leadership," as a "spectator president" and as "lackadaisical." However, a closer analysis of Coolidge reveals that he is perhaps the most misunderstood chief executive in American history.
