Hat Tip to Vermont's Silent Cal

Powerlineblog today quoted Pres. Calvin Coolidge, one of the most underrated presidents in U.S. history.  Since Pres. Coolidge came from Vermont, Bayley Hazen Blog will use the legal right of  adverse possession to post the link.  As the Powerlineblog post notes in quoting Vermont's Cal Coolidge, our current President certainly could use Silent Cal's wisdom:

“It is a great advantage to a President, and a major source of safety to the country, for him to know that he is not a great man.  When a man begins to feel that he is the only one who can lead in this republic, he is guilty of treason to the spirit of our institutions.”
“A President cannot, with success, constantly appeal to the country.  After a time he will get no response.”
Here is Powerline's post on President Coolidge
