Corrupt BargainThis month’s podcast from The Hermitage features yours truly, as James Yasko and I discussed the 1824 election and the “corrupt bargain.” I’m not a great phone interviewee, so be forewarned. My thanks to James for the opportunity to contribute to the series.

If you’re interested, Elektratig, whose image I used for this post, provides a good summary of Buchanan’s role in the “corrupt bargain.”

One thought on “The Hermitage Podcast Series: The Corrupt Bargain

  1. The narrator of the podcast said that the 1824 election was the “first” crisis in the history of presidential elections. Did he forget 1800 when the election went to the House for the first time?
