Most Famous Founding Father to Never Become President

Alexander Hamilton - Ron Chernow

My second favorite founding father, after Jefferson.  They couldn't have been more unalike and pretty much hated each other but that is what made the fledgling country work.  They only agreed on one thing, that the colonies shouldn't have a non-representative monarch half a world away anymore.
