1848: Lewis Cass
1852-1856: Gerrit Smith
1860-1864: Abraham Lincoln
1868: Ulysses S. Grant
1872: Horace Greeley
1876: Rutherford B. Hayes
1880: I'd just sit out on this one

1964: Lyndon B. Johnson
1968: Hubert Humphrey
1972: George McGovern
1976-1980: Jimmy Carter

In hingsight, Debs and Mondale are the only ones on the list I that I know much about and actually like. I wonder what one would think my political views are based off the list alone. Feel free to guess as a comment on the blog!
