  • I, Henry Clay, am the Speaker of the House so the outcome is basically in my hands, yeet
  • However, since u do not have the majority of the Presidential Electoral votes the final decision is up to the House of Representatives. 
  • I convinced Congress to elect you, John Q. Adams so u kno what that means lmao
  • As promised, I will make you Secretary of State, esketit
  • This was planned. One could call this a corrupt bargain.
