In the original colonies; that declaired freedom from the British Crown: The colonies as states; only allowed white male land owners, to vote; or run for political office. To my kowledge; that was still in effect, when Andrew Jackson was president,

John C. Calhoun was 7th Vice President of the United States and from South Carolina. Calhoun was Vice President to both John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson. Calhoun tried to run for President but was unable to gain the nomination, losing to Polk.
because he wanted to be president.
1984 (Jesse Jackson) Actually Shirley Chisolm in 1972.
Johnson did not run for president. He became president because he was the vice-president when Lincoln was killed.
He was always inspired by the idea of running a country under the people's rule. I also think it was because anyone thought it was fun.
Yes, otherwise Martin Van Buren and John C. Calhoun would be hundreds of years old today. Van Buren and Calhoun both attempted to run for president later at different times, with Van Buren becoming President immediately after Andrew Jackson.
In 1984 and again 1988, Jackson made a serious run in the Democratic primaries.
Henry Clay and Andrew Jackson ;-)
In my opinion, Andrew Jackson chose not to run for presidency in 1836 since he had failed enough. From weakening the Second National Bank of the United States to trying to stop the inflation.
In the Election of 1824, Andrew Jackson won 99 Electoral votes, higher than any other candidate. He even won the Popular Vote but did not become President that year. In the Election of 1828, he won 178 Electoral Votes; this time, it did put him in office. Jackson would run a third time in the Election of 1832 where he won with 219 Electoral votes and beating Henry Clay, John Floyd, and William Wirt.
These men all spent their adult lives in Tennessee and all are buried there. They belonged to the same Democratic party until Johnson was chosen to run for vice-president with Lincoln.
He tried to run in 1868, but lost the party nomination.
John C. Calhoun, who was VP under both John Q. Adams and Andrew Jackson.
Henry Clay of Kentucky.
He served two terms and following the lead of George Washington, he did not run for a third term. He left office when his second term expired and the new president was sworn in.

Sure One did: Andrew Johnson.
He did not want to be president when the idea was first raised by his friends and supporters, but they gave his evidence that the common people adored him and he could be their champion against the corrupt moneyed establishment in the East. When it was pointed out that if he did not run, Henry Clay, John Calhoun, or William Crawford would probably be elected, he agreed to run.
In 1824, Jackson won more electoral votes than any other candidates but did get the required majority, so the House decided the election and they decided against Jackson and elected John Q. Adams. People did not run for President in those days the way that they do now. The fact that Jackson was not made President did not damage his future chances the way that losing a campaign does today. Jackson won the 1828 election… Read More
