This draft has two failed presidential nominees and one VP. I just read a book that compared Trump to Vardaman. George W Norris was the nephew of my great-great grandfather. As such, he's my 1st cousin many times removed. My great-great grandfather was also Sen. Norris's teacher. My great-great-great grandfather, the brother of Norris's mother, was the executor on Norris's father's will.

I've seen James Blaine being compared to Trump as well.
