Annotation James K. Polk, 49 years old, was seen by some to be colorless, methodical, and plodding, but the dark horse candidate defeated the magnetic Henry Clay in the 1844 presidential election. Later Polk was seen to be honest, conscientious, limited in vision, but incapable of deceit or double dealing, with a strict integrity and intense singleness of purpose. Adult.
