Did You Know?


Donald Blythe tells Claire Underwood that the Senate had chosen a Vice President due to a contingent election since 1825. However, while that was the last time that the House chose the President, John C. Calhoun won the majority of the electoral vote for Vice President and there was no contingent election in the Senate for Vice President that year. The last time the Senate chose the Vice President was in 1837 when Democrat Richard M. Johnson failed to win a majority of electoral votes for Vice President and was elected by the Senate over Whig nominee Francis Granger. See more »

The Rats Are Chewing the Ropes
24 June 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I would like to get to the point in this series. This one is a bit talkie but necessary. The interesting thing in the eye of the law is that when the vote comes, it is possible that we could have a split ticket. This means a President and a Vice President from different parties (namely, Conway as President and Claire as Vice President). I have not looked ahead, so I am positing this as a way things could go. Through most of this episode, we have both parties, but mostly the Underwoods, strong-arming House members. It's hopeful that there will be some more resolution in Episode 58. One significant member has disappeared and is being sought. Also, there is a tense scene as Frank doubts Doug's loyalty. Granated, Frank dragged Doug out of the depths of depression and drunkenness and saved his life, but Doug is so right to feel betrayed, considering what he has done for Frank (both good and evil). Meanwhile, we are watching Claire prancing around considering her own possibilities.
