Fact of the Day: Washington the Babysitter

Washington had the desire to retire after one term instead of two terms. A major reason he stayed in politics was because two of his cabinet members Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton had such polarizing politics that they risked dividing the country without someone they respected to tone down their war of politics.
