Could Hillary make another run against Obama? That would be the rematch of the millennium (we are only just over a decade into this thousand year period and there’s only so much material to work with so far). What even happens to a president if he or she loses their own party’s primary?

As it turns out, Franklin Pierce, America’s fourteenth president (1853-1857) from New Hampshire, has been deemed by many historians as the worst president in American history. He is the only president who was abandoned by his own party and not re-nominated to run in the 1856 presidential election. He was replaced by James Buchanan.

Historians Philip B. Kunhardt and Peter W. Kunhardt expressed a common sentiment in “The American President” that Pierce was "a good man who didn't understand his own shortcomings. He was genuinely religious, loved his wife and reshaped himself so that he could adapt to her ways and show her true affection. He was one of the most popular men in New Hampshire, polite and thoughtful, easy and good at the political game, charming and fine and handsome. However, he has been criticized as timid and unable to cope with a changing America."

Franklin Pierce did not technically lose a primary, he was simply not re-nominated. He was the only president in American history to underachieve this dishonor but history has a way of repeating itself.

Today marks one entire year of running against Obama!

996.3 miles to go.
