Plain and simple: one of the worst presidents ever.
That cholera really showed him. His cut and run strategy lead to the Compromise of 1850.
His nickname was "Old Rough and Ready". Enough said.
One of the 5 "Mediocre Presidents" joining Tyler, Filmore, Hayes, and William Henry Harrison, who died in thirty days.
Even his children sucked. For instance, Sarah Knox Taylor married future Confederate president Jefferson Davis; she died from malaria three months after the marriage. Serves her right.
