Storyboard Text

  • The polls just came in. Americas new President will be... A tie? How can this be? Not to worry, the Constitution has just the solution to this problem. The House of Representatives will have a debate deciding who should win.
  • The presidential candidates that tied are Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr.  Now it is up to us to determine who will be the third president of The United States. Would anyone like to start the debate?
  • I will. Hello, for those of you who do not know me, my name is Alexander Hamilton. Although I have never been fond of Thomas Jefferson, I believe that he is far less of a dangerous man than Aaron Burr.
  • I agree with your statement Mr. Hamilton. Thomas Jefferson is an educated agriculturalist. He played an important role in the creation of The Declaration of Independence. Jefferson helped make one of our nations most sacred documents. He would make a fine president. 
  • How can you say that? Aaron Burr is the clear choice. He went to Princeton University and is a successful man.  He will do great things as president.
  • It is obvious that we have all made our point, now the tough decision. We vote.
  • America, we have just received word that The House of Representatives have determined the fate of all of us. Our new president will be... Thomas Jefferson! Congratulations Jefferson, and also a congrats to our new vice president Aaron Burr.
