These comments have aged... poorly.
I got most back to 1960, and the first few, plus most that ran unsuccessfully for a 2nd term or had an unsuccessful 1st bid before they won. I also got Al Smith just on a complete guess, whoever that is, when I was typing in random common names.
Sorry, I forgot.
Of course Clay's accomplishments didn't even come close to matching Adams' or Jefferson's or Roosevelt's, who all later won.
The first thing I noticed was that he died on March 4, the date of presidential inauguration until FDR's second term.
He was the youngest ever governor of Minnesota, but after 4 years of that job his political success evaporated.
He lived to 94, dying in 2001 and as noted tried for the presidency the last time at 85.

I'm sure you've heard this a bunch of times, but Jetpunk could really use a commenting system that allows you to be notified when someone responds to one of your comments. Not the ones that require you to be on Facebook or something else, but would be nice.
Consider your JetPunk comment a gift you leave the world. If someone smiles or learns something, it's nice, even if you never see it happen.
