Well, for starters Hamilton never would have made the Louisiana Purchase. I'd consider that a tragic alteration to history, wouldn't you? As for Burr, he was *supposed* to be the VP candidate, but got ambitious after the tie vote and didn't step aside as originally agreed -- the mess led to the 12th Amendment and the Presidential ticket.
