Monroe will declare his intention for another term, blaming the Federalist Congress for blocking many of his ideas and cabinet nominees due to intense partisanship. He says that political neophytes like Clay won't be able to get anything done and will just bow to the Federalists.

Justice Andrew Jackson gives an unprecedented display of support for the incumbent President. Perhaps breaking the very norms of the duties of a Justice itself. 

He says,

"Any bastard that doesn't stand by James Monroe is a coward. Those Federalist sons a' bitches blocked 3 of his court nominees and sat on their asses doin nothin for the American people. While us in the opposition were doin what we could, with what we got. I urge the American people to stand by Monroe, and clean up this Government when voting time comes. Vote the Federalists out. They don't give a damn about you."

Josiah Quincy suggests that the House should impeach Jackson like they did Chase...

Roger Taney announces he will run for the Federalist Presidential nomination. His campaign is staunchly conservative, and Taney promises to restore the slave trade and take on the liberal east coast establishment. He also promises to build a wall and make the native Americans pay for it, after first banning all immigrants from Ireland.

Except that Taney was anti-slavery at that time.
