Most Successful Presidential Campaign from Prison

Eugene Debs 1920. (different year than the above poster.)

"There is one thing I know on the eve of this election. I shall not be disappointed. The result will be as it should be. The people will vote for what they think they want, to the extent that they think at all, and they, too, will not be disappointed...The people can have anything they want. The trouble is they do not want anything. At least they vote that way on election day."

I can't sleep and am reading about the 1920 election. I would not ever call myself a socialist, but that's a pretty baller quote.
