Runs for president a few times but loses every single time - Interesting things about election of 1824 o First can clearly start talking about a popular vote Enough states that are letting people vote for president that you can see popular vote o constitution’s original intention was electoral college choose president; in 1824 when you first start to see states doing it the way we do it today - was clear after election that AJ had more popular votes than the other 2 o didn't have enough votes constitution: to be pres, have to have majority of all the votes out there AJ has more votes than the other 2, but doesn't get more than half of the votes that are up for grabs In the end the US HOR selected JQA to be president—it was there call - AJ felt ripped off as did his supporters o Started carrying on about ”corrupt bargain” in quotes because probs didn't happen the way AJ said it happened most historians today don’t believe it ever happened not a shred of evidence it ever happened and it was completely against the nature of the guys involved o JQA and HC involved in corrupt bargain; was not the way they did things, they were both brutally honest o Henry Clay backs down when decision went to HOR; and then threw his support to JQA, this did it for JQA and got HOR vote for president Once he gets the presidency, he made Henry Clay his Secretary of State Corrupt bargain: JQA and HC got together and HC backed out and then would get a spot in the cabinet Of the 3, Henry Clay had the least support, so it made sense for him to back out of the race, and it made sense for JQA to choose him as SOS, and JQA liked him, so he chose him. - as president, JQA had same problems as his father

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
