69, 70, 71, 72, 73! I don't believe it! Both Burr and Jefferson received exactly 73 ballots each! The constitution has nothing saying this can't happen. So, I suppose its up to the delegates now!
Later in Congress...
Psssst. Bro! Who are you voting for?
I have no clue! I wish there was someone who we all know and respect who could give us some incite. Oh wait there is...
Dear Hamilton, We need your help. understand that you're depressed and mourning the death of your son (which was partially your fault) and everything, but Congress has no clue who to vote for for President. Pls send help!
This is some serious stuff. And thanks for being so upfront, its not like I have emotions or anything. Anyway, I know both delegates personally, and if you want to know, I would vote for Jefferson. I've never agreed with him once, but at least he has beliefs that we know. Burr is a wild card, and that is truly dangerous. You don't want that as your president.
Back In Congress...
Wow, he's so smart! Now I now who to vote for!
And so, with the help of Alexander Hamilton, the third US president, who won the election of 1800, was Thomas Jefferson.
Thanks for the indorsments Hamilton! Oh, and by the way Burr, I'm making a law so that the runner up ISN'T vice-presedent. That's what you get for openly campaining against me.
