"Mister, we could use a man like Andy Jackson again"

(You have to imagine Carrol O'Connor and Jean Stapelton singing that...)

By way of Sebastian, Clayton Cramer gives us Andrew Jackson's Farewell Address.

I have a lot of friends who will not tolerate anything nice being said about Andy Jackson.  They mostly claim Cherokee descent, and still hold a grudge for the Trail of Tears.  Fair enough, but this address sure resonates today.
