An orator who is capable of swaying his audiences

Extremely clever and capable."

POTUS-15 Oregon Treaty 1791-1868 James Buchanan is often ranked by historians as the worst (or one of the worst) USA presidents in history. Buchanan was an attorney who had not practiced law in decades. He had lived outside the USA as a diplomat during antebellum decade and knew little about the social and economic violence of slavery. With typical Mula arrogance (non-questioning) Buchanan trivialized the massive moral content of the slavery debate as "a small matter" of Constitutional Law.
Buchanan had been elected by northerners seeking moral leadership. Yet because he was beholden to the financially privileged slave-owning planters who funded his lifestyle, and also because he preferred a romanticized view of the agrarian-roots Deep South (where he did not live and about which he knew little reality - Ketu) Buchanan was unable to decide. Instead, he blustered and dithered.
Instead of addressing the monumental moral questions, Buchanan spent four years pretending that there was no serious problem. As moral outrage reached the boiling point, he ignored the moral arguments, taking instead a legalist stance that while it was illegal for the southern states to secede from the union, it was equally illegal for the government to force reunification.
Scholars see Buchanan's tenure as the nadir of national leadership which could not have come at a worse time. Meanwhile Buchanan enjoyed holding court at Washington D.C. salon-parties. He retired in a climate of non-accountability (Ketu) claiming that he was not responsible for the problems he left behind. As the Civil War began to rage, retired POTUS-15 James Buchanan wrote a self-justifying book defending his presidential actions and blaming the slavery problem on impatient abolitionists.(The book was ignored; the war had started.)
As a career diplomat, POTUS-15 Oregon Treaty 1791-1868 (1857-1861) James Buchanan 's main task was to form nationally beneficial relationships with important commercial interests in several countries.
