After eight years as President "I have only two regrets: that I have not shot Henry Clay or hanged John C. Calhoun."--1837--
Andrew Jackson (Calhoun was his Vice-President and Clay a former Secretary of State)
" As they see it, he’s a fighter, tenacious and decisive. He fought the unions again and again, and he won each time. They see the 47-year-old governor as a truth-teller, a pure conservative and an energetic, fresh face — as the future."
