    I, for one, take issue with your presentation good sir. For one, you seem to have purposely misrepresented the actual occurrences during this negotiation process. There was no corruption in the bargain, for there was no bargain. Henry Clay was awarded that position in the Cabinet by his merits and his merits only. Please delete this glog and refrain from spreading your liberal propaganda here.
