The strangest President personality-wise was probably Calvin Coolidge. I’ve written a couple of essays about his eccentricities, unorthodox personal qualities, and unique leadership style — "I Thought I Could Swing It: The Strange Life and Presidency of Calvin Coolidge" and "I feel like I no longer fit in with these times".

Unfortunately, you can’t govern a nation on paper or potential, and those highly-qualified leaders found that their personalities were not suited for the job of President of the United States.
