Best Answer

Henry Clay's first public office was as a Kentucky Legislature. He then became a U.S Senator and then a House Representative. Then he was the Speaker of the House. In 1824 he ran for president but couldn't win so he threw his support to Adams. As a result Adams defeated Andrew Jackson for the presidency. Then Adams made Henry Clay Secretary of State. A lot of people accused Clay and Adams of making a "Corrupt Bargain," (Clay would throw support to Adams in exchaneg for being made SoS) though historians are generally divided on that issue. Later he was given a chance to move to the Supreme Court but declined. He was a senator at the time of his death.
