Irving Stone wrote a breezy tome on this topic in the middle of the 20th century titled “They Also Ran.” His book is popular history at its finest, but like any political history has its biases. I have mine and I focus on three elections, 1824, 1860, and 1896 and what American might have been like had the “also ran” won the election.
