Second, Adams never fit the partisan dichotomy that captured the ­imagination of posterity and American political historiography. Ideological adherents of Jefferson and Hamilton have long traced an unbroken lineage of intellectual and political descent to their respective parent sources. By c­ ontrast, Adams never had a band of intellectual and political heirs claiming him as a forebear.
