A hot piece of history sex. Known for his 4 failed runs for the presidency and his amazing ability to form compromises in a pig-headed congress. Responsible for the Missouri Compromise and the Compromise of 1850, which in fact DELAYED the Civil War for 10 years, giving the North time to grow strong enough to defeat the south, meaning Clay is the reason slavery no longer exists. Not related to the devil. A cult favorite of AP US history students. And hot. Did we mention hot?
