One More Thing About Harrison


He wasn’t just the last challenger to beat an incumbent president even though he had never been a governor or president himself. He was, as several of my emailers point out, the only one–at least if you count the appointed governors of the territories (such as William Henry Harrison and Andrew Jackson) as governors. . . . One more reason to think that maybe running Senator Dole against Clinton in 1996 wasn’t such a hot idea.
