In this video, we’re gonna focus on those losers. Er, uh...those losing candidates. While there have been 45 different individuals who have served as President in American history, there have been tens of thousands of people who have run for President, and yes most of them stood little chance of winning. Approximately 55 of them were actual contenders, meaning it appeared they had at least a solid chance of winning going into the final weeks of their campaigns.

My criteria for qualified candidates is simple:
They had to be a major contender
They had to run before the year 2000
They couldn’t later win the Presidency.

Now, how I picked these top 10 is also simple. I looked at:
Character
Leadership experience
