Pvt Clewell:

Grant was clearly apolitcal

That might be too bold a statement. The truth probably lies between your and 5fish's opinions. But Grant knew how and did play the political game. See what he did to McClernand during the Vicksburg Campaign and how many times he did things Lincoln wanted him to do when he didn't want to do them, e.g. send a corps of the AoP to protect DC during Early's Raid.
