Dark Horses, Underdogs, and Corrupt Bargains
In 1800, Thomas Jefferson emerged the disputed victor after a campaign against John Adams marked by vehement mudslinging by both presidential candidates. In 1844, "the War Horse" Henry Clay somehow lost to "the Dark Horse" James Polk. And in 2000, after great controversy involving confusing ballots, the validity of absentee ballots, and voting machines that made the voter's intended choice unclear, Al Gore lost to George W. Bush, despite Gore's winning of the popular vote.
