    I read a biography of Aaron Burr a while back, and it made me sympathetic. If he'd won in 1800, he might've been a good president.

    Still, though, how many criminal VPs have we had? A "Spiro Agnew" slur would hardly have the same rhetorical impact.

      do you think France would still own LA? - I'm sure the gulf would be a lot better off if they did...
      •  hadn't even thought about the LA Purchase (none)
        Would make an interesting alternative history, though. My guess is either we'd buy it anyway or it would gain independence Canada-style, after a British take-over. But that's just idle speculation.
