Martin Van Buren (Democratic-Republican), 9th Vice President of the United States of America, 1st Term: March 5th 1821 - March 4th 1825

 

Clay's 1st term is nearly identical to Monroe's 2nd IRL term, Clay's term features a more interventionist economic policy than Monroe's though and large investments in the country's infrastructure.

What about his vast infrastructure plan, and anti-intervention and anti-expansion policies in foreign affairs? And his views to promote compromise (and ideally, harmony) between the regions of the nation? I see none of this here...

I will add the infrastructure plan but the anti-intervention thing falls under the same as Monroe category and the 1820 scenario has his expansion policies/views as being more extreme than Monroe, seeking to acquire more land via force and not just via purchase.

Rumours say that Former President Daniel Tompkins is probably dying from alcoholism.

Secretary John C. Calhoun, General Andrew Jackson, President Henry Clay, Secretary John Quincy Adams and Chief Justice John Marshall have all announced their bids for the Presidency.

Old Democratic-Republicans who have no clear candidate to support are urging their leader John Randolph to run for President.

Establishment Democratic-Republicans are believed to favour William Crawford for President over all the other candidates.
