The arduous, often unpredictable journey to the U.S. presidency has attracted some of the most unique characters in history. With "unusual" presidential candidates grabbing headlines for the foreseeable future, Contenders shines a welcome spotlight on individuals that felt inspired to offer their uncommon perspectives and special talents to lead the nation. From heartbreaking near-misses (Stevenson, Bryan) and historic firsts (Woodhull, Chisolm, Smith), to campaigns that never stood a chance (Allen), Contenders provides fascinating insights into the American political process, along with unforgettable tales of the individuals we've met along the way. Featuring: Victoria Woodhull: The First Woman to Run for President Williams Jennings Bryan: The Speech That Changed Politics Adlai Stevenson: A Candidate in the Age of Television Margaret Chase Smith: Cold War in Pearls Shirley Chisolm: The Politics of Principle Gracie Allen: The Joke that Became a Campaign The "Veep": Alben Barkley's "Buck" Stopped with Harry Truman And more!
