The poll includes the major and notable names of the 1774 active draft. The active draft are all politicians that had reached the age of 25 and were "active" at game start. 

The Red team is the party that will be the Federalist, pro-administration party. The Blue team is the anti-Federalist, anti-administration party. 

The politicians have pretty high draft grades because they had been active for awhile, for the most part. Overall, politicians that have a greater range (historically held office as a legislator, executor, judge, general, secretary, etc.) will have a higher grade because they have more avenues of usefulness.

I'm sorry to say this, I really am, but the terms, "Red Party," and, "Blue Party," remind me of former Rwandan President Juvenal Habyaramana (the one whose assassination was only hours before the Hundred Days of the Genocide there began in 1994) and his blatantly, obviously, glaringly rigged election (even bad by African, "emerging democracy," standards) where the ballots had only colours on them, because Habyaramana said, "most Rwandans are illiterate." That old reference just popped unbidden into my head. 😏

I feel pretty confident that most potential buyers of the game will not make that association.  ;c)

I just want to say Abigail Adams was a really close second. I'm really excited to play as females and minorities that would have otherwise had to wait, in some cases, centuries before having a chance at public office.

I've added a lot of women and minorities (including famous Native Americans). They're unlocked either in the settings before the game starts or via legislation/amendments. For instance, Abigail Adams would be drafted at this time if the settings allowed women voters at the start. Otherwise, she wouldn't be available until suffrage is attained, provided she's still alive when suffrage is attained.

One of my favorite things in the game is really drastically changing someone's course in life.  Like in our 2000 game, I got Rudy Giuliani to become Speaker of the House.  Haha.
