Jefferson Was A Pragmatic Leader

Our analysis of Jefferson's presidency was that he was pragmatic. Though Jefferson did believe in certain principles, he did not follow a set of ideas. Instead his true intentions were based on the greater good of the nation.

In 1801, Thomas Jefferson Was Elected 3rd President of the U.S.

The man who had written that "all men are created equal," the philosopher who had provided the emerging nation with its founding statement of human and national rights, was now rewarded with the presidential office.
