I was *this* close to including "shared with Ma Kent and Batman's mom"... but it wouldn't have fit very well and probably QM would have edited it out when he featured it.
Those two statements might seem contradictory, but in 1789 the presidential election worked differently. There was no popular vote. 10 states sent electors based on their populations. Those 69 electors each cast a ballot with their 1st and 2nd picks for president. Everyone voted for Washington, so he received 69 electoral votes. About half of the electors voted for John Adams who got 34 electoral votes. Coming in 2nd place, Adams was made vice president.
