Andrew Johnson: The Quintessential Rags-to-Riches Union Racist!
The final VP Candideee we're looking at for this 1864 election is a man that whose existence in the history of the United States of America demonstrates so many contradictory forces at play all at once! Indeed, what a confounding figure...

04:21 05/01/2022
Joseph Lane: Improvisational Bum Extraordinaire
The second-to-last VP Candidate for 1860 is quite an interesting case... The lack of lawyer-like pedigree is surprising for this fellow... But hey, the mouth of a merchant is quite magical!
