Yes, one of the best examples of a Hamiltonian politician in his realization of the importance of trade and commerce, James Buchanan scored the United States a maritime trade treaty with Russia. He also displayed his political adeptness in his staying out of the Kansas-Nebraska Act, thus leaving his… reputation untarnished and making him the only president that seemed fit to keep the union stable, and did he ever keep it stable. An opposing viewpoint: In most historian's ranks of American presidents, James Buchanan appears at or near the bottom. One would be hard-pressed to find any notable achievements while he was in office and the failures of his Presidency (notably presiding over the secession of the Southern states and the start of the Civil War) tarnish his legacy. The most remarkable thing about Buchanan is that he was elected at all.

Moreover, the nation knew it, too - he was not far into the closet....Today, I know no historian who has studied the matter and thinks Buchanan was heterosexual." (MORE)
