As any fan of Hamilton can tell you, Alex HATED Jefferson with the white-hot passion of a thousand burning suns. Jefferson tried repeatedly to get Hamilton tossed from the cabinet… which didn’t work because Hamilton had been Washington’s right-hand throughout the war, and they grew close. W had a lot of faith in the value of H’s unconventional ideas, and protected him.

Hamilton was the deciding vote that got Jefferson elected, but only because he hated Burr even more.

I like Jefferson less as I get older. Like the words but the man was immensely flawed.
