Quote of the Day

But let us not forget, too, that it was John Adams who nominated George Washington to be commander-in-chief of the Continental Army. It was John Adams who insisted that Jefferson be the one to write the Declaration of Independence. And it was John Adams who made John Marshall chief justice of the Supreme Court. As a casting director alone, he was brilliant.

- David McCullough

Crusty,

You are most welcome. That quote is from his latest book, "The American Spirit."
