Huey Newton a failure?

Do you beleive that Huey Newton ultimately was a failure? I mean besides creating the Black Panthers, he did little. He spent most of the time in jail and couldn't do much for the movement. When he did get out, he soon became addicted to drugs and was even convicted to misusing funds for of all things an urban school! So do you think that Huey Newton did more harm than good? I tend to think so and I think Bobby Seale and Cleaver should get more credit than Newton does.
