As the American people witness developments in this year's presidential campaign, the Dean of WKU's Potter College says its a good time to think about a hotly-contested campaign that took place one hundred years ago. Dr. David Lee says that election became a four-way race, with three of the candidates being individuals who had been-- or would become--President of the United States. Dr. Lee says 1912 may have marked the high water point for independent candidacies in the U.S.
