S02e09 Tilden: He’s No Andrew Jackson

The Almost Presidents Podcast

It’s the run up to the 1876 Election!

A vengeful and embittered Democratic Party and a Republican Party mired in scandal meet at their respective nominating conventions.

For the Republicans, Ohio Governor Rutherford B. Hayes demonstrates the impact of “the Joe Biden Effect” by winning the nomination for being “offensive to no one.”

On the Democratic side, New York Governor Samuel J. Tilden wraps up the nomination with relative ease, and accepts the nomination like an absolute boss.

Meanwhile, the country prepares itself for one of the most brutal, fractious, and violent election cycles in American history.
