In the spirit of community-building and tension-relieving, let's play (US) Election Day Trivia!

When you post an answer, you have to ask the next question!

*****

Let's begin:

Who was the first President to be born in a hospital (as opposed to at home)?

Adams




I did enjoy the Adams special on HBO


Presidents and Vice Presidents have a long history of poor press coverage. Which Vice President actually *shot* the founder of what would later become The New York Post?

Not all those who wander are lost
