You do know that John Rutledge was against electoral government and thought the "common man" was too incompetent to take part in politics and should stick to their daily labours and leave governance up to "elder statesmen"' for whom he never specified how he envisioned them being chosen, but likely "by their peers."

He also held extreme influence in the Continental Congress and molded much of what we know to be history of that time, to the chagrin of Jefferson, Washington, Madison, Jefferson, and myself included. He was not a good man, but he was a great politician. I am having trouble balancing the two in my votes, very influential, but not for good, yet a key piece of that history. We held the South by his command, and that's not to be dismissed.

Sorry for the slight delay.  The Missouri primary is just over a week away, so my internship has been absorbing more of my time.

Ah, an intern? I won't work for a political party unless I'm a co-founder and ideologue from the ground up... :P

I'm not working for the party.  In fact, the state (of Missouri) and national party are attempting to screw our campaign over.  I've considered applying to intern for the RNC in 2020 in order to get into the convention, but I prefer interning with candidates (and elected officials) that I most agree with.

So, I interned on my man Rand Paul's re-election campaign in 2016 and with Austin Petersen's Senate campaign (currently).

Aaron Burr? Wasn't he a bit... unhinged? And I notice you chose Rutledge too (see my reservations above).
