    Because of an oversight in the Constitution, the nation found itself in a curious predicament after the election of 1796. What happened?

    1) Thomas Jefferson's running mate, Aaron Burr, received more votes than Jefferson did, making him John Adams' vice-president
    2) Thomas Jefferson won the popular vote but John Adams won the electoral vote, making Adams the 2nd president
    3) Alexander Hamilton, who was not born in the United States, won the most electoral and popular votes
    4) John Adams, a Federalist, found himself with a Republican vice-president when Jefferson finished second in the voting
