Too many possible interpretations of "smart" to choose just one.
Yes Jefferson would be a good choice right there with Leonardo...
so what? we can all be like that here, well, if you compare the quantity of knowledge at that time, by that time, i can be all those, because, they don't have that much of knoledge that needs every branche to be studied alone, or, to be specialist at.
What would you rather be, the smartest or the happiest??
The smartest man?
The man that invented fire, he was likely also the one that discovered that it hurts to get burnt.
How about the guy that invented the wheel, Multiple centuries have passed and we are still using them because we can't make them any more efficient.
I think we give people who made advanvancements 100s\1000s of years ago too much credit. Not that they dont deserve credit but i think it is overblown. The reason is because advancements and discoveries were easier to make and some of it was just pure determination. Well that what i think.
What's a limeedo?

Oh, of course. How stupid of me.

The smartest man is Alfred E. Neuman -- the smartest animal is Yogi Bear

I am in a state of perpetual education. That is to say I am always in orbit to discover new and perplexing ideas and concepts. As far as formal education, I spent some years in a practice of collegiate redundancy. Just kidding. I do not knock formal education, but I do not care for the low level of standards many educational institutions use to support its growth and quality.
My point to follow is that let us look at Davinci. His ideas were so far ahead of his own time. Then look at Einstien. His achievements were competitive WITHIN his time. There is no doubt Albert was brilliant, but there is a significant difference in resources to draw upon.
The person who educates others is the smartest of them all for if knowledge wasn't passed along we wouldn'r be here today.
