Interesting ...

... perhaps before we all start complaining about negative campaigning, we can at least see where we've been.
John Adams lived long enough to see his son become president in 1825, but he died before John Quincy Adams lost the presidency to Andrew Jackson in 1828. Fortunately, that meant he didn't have to witness what many historians consider the nastiest contest in American history.

The slurs flew back and forth, with John Quincy Adams being labeled a pimp, and Andrew Jackson's wife getting called a slut.
Was John Adams pimping Andrew Jackson's wife?
