Let's be honest---you guessed Nixon, didn't you?
The correct answer is James Buchanan. To add insult to injury, poor James tends to rank as a bottom 10 President in political studies. Yeesh. Let's hope he at least had a nice pet rock to help him cope.

Are we for absolute certain the answer isn't Donald Trump?
Warren G. Harding lost the White House's china collection in a single hand. That's what happens when you get cocky with pocket rockets.

Give the people what they want---non-commitment.
Since there were so many politicians who wanted to run for presidency, he promised he'd be done after his first term, leaving the door open for someone else the next time around. Donald Trump somehow didn't need to utilize this same strategy.

Vulcanized rubber, that is. In case that helps this sound any better.
They found a cancerous lesion in Grover Cleveland's mouth and wanted to keep the entire surgical procedure hush hush. Good thing there was no such thing as a narcotic induced Twitter rants back then.

So long as I'm the head cheerleader, my measure of success is victory---and success.
