POTUS John Adams was a crotchety, stubborn, out-spoken lawyer who just might be the MVP of the Founding Father team!  He used the power of his mind and his sharp tongue to inspire our revolution and help create the constitution.  He became President under tough conditions, never quite able to get out of the long shadow of George Washington.  He lost his bid for a 2nd term, and that’s when his greatest contribution may have taken place – the precedence of a peaceful transfer of power.  The Colossus of Independence, John Adams is on this episode of American POTUS!
