You'll read in his memoirs that Grant had good political judgment. E.g.,  his decision to take Vicksburg from the Miss R. after his supply base at Holly Springs was taken was partly made on political grounds--that the Northern people needed to see action and results.

I also believe his keen mind was part of the reason he was not successful in business. He had a penetrating mind, not and expansive, imaginative one needed in business.
