6. Warren G. Harding
This 1923 portrait of Warren G. Harding by Margaret Lindsay Williams hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC.

“The first two decades of the twentieth century had been marked by American involvement in a world war and a host of progressive reforms in the country's economic and social institutions. By 1920, voters wanted a rest from all this change and ferment and were ready for a brand of White House leadership that did not threaten the status quo. In Warren G. Harding, that year's Republican presidential candidate, they found what they wanted. A convivial onetime newspaper editor, Harding made ‘normalcy’ the keynote of his campaign. Although the meaning of the newly coined term was uncertain, it at least promised no unsettling changes.

Harding's administration was marked by scandals. A trusting individual, he appointed cronies to his administration who proved all too ready to use their offices for private gain. Harding, however, escaped having to face the corrupt behavior of his appointees. Just as stories of their wrongdoing were coming to light, he collapsed and died.” — National Portrait Gallery
