Summary J. Adams, Taylor, Hayes, Carter: Each president is alone accountable for his administration, but powerful interests continually push and pull him on all sides. The four grouped here raised independence in action to a point of principle, making it a test of character. Determined to stand on his own ground despite potential damage to his political base, each battled with powerful interests and political affiliates, often unsuccessfully.
