Hamilton &
Jefferson &
Adams &

This week on the Road to 2024, we take a brief step away from the world of Joe Biden, Donald Trump, and Ron DeSantis, and turn back the clock to recap the wild Presidential Election of 1800.  The presidency of John Adams was riddled with scandal, allowing his Vice President and enemy Thomas Jefferson a good chance at taking the presidency. But Jefferson's party screws up resulting in our country's first electoral college tie with Vice Presidential candidate Aaron Burr. The race goes to the House of Representatives where the members decide the next President,  but not without Revolutionary War hero and political veteran Alexander Hamilton having something to say about it.
