Pierce, Garfield, Harding, Ford: Lord Bryce asked why relatively obscure figures were often prominently featured in the American presidency. Between Jackson and FDR, U.S. political parties passed over great men because their strong views threatened to remake the parties. The old tradition of "dark horse" nominees, consensus builders on the convention floor, continues with these four compromise choices, selected over better-known figures.
