Andrew Jackson dueled at least 13 people, so was one of them a minor?

Here's one I just read about: Which former presidential candidate accidentally killed a young girl?
The answer is Adlai Stevenson.

Correct. As a child, he was playing with his friends with a gun he found. Thinking it was unloaded, he pointed it at a girl and pulled the trigger...

Seeing how I answered the last question correctly I guess I will ask the next question.

Which president once sued his future Interior Secretary? (Bonus points if you name the Interior Secretary!)

Here's my first question: who was TR's vice president?  Before you answer, I will say that contrary to popular misconception,  it was NOT Taft.

Who was the first black president of the United States of America?

From all tickets? No clue.

According to wikipedia Kalwejt, you are exactly right!
Barry Morris Goldwater, "Mr. Conservative" was the first Jewish American to run for president, on a major party ticket.

Bill Clinton and Bruce Babbitt

Taft and Pinchot?

I googled lawsuits between these men and nothing came up to match it. These may very well be correct answers and if you know that they are please tell me.

As for the first question:

Quote

I will give a hint. The president met his future Interior Secretary while stationed in Detroit, Michigan.

The basic idea of this thread is that you answer the Presidential Election trivia question asked by the previous poster.  I'll get it started:

Who was the Progressive Party VP nominee in 1912?

Easy one, Hiram Johnson of California.

Now for my question, in what year did Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. loose to Kennedy for a Massachusetts senate seat?

You didn't read it correctly. You were suppose to answer the question above! Bloody Hell.

1952 was the year Henry Cabot Lodge Junior lost to John F. Kennedy.

In 1946, Richard Nixon won California's 12th Congressional District seat, who did he defeat?

Jerry Voorhis. Who was a five term incumbent.

Are you going to ask another question?

Oh, yes sorry.

In what year did Ronald Reagan formally switch from the democratic party to the republican party?
officially in 1962.
Regan became a republican.who was ted kenedy"s first opponent in his run for senator?

Rooney, my guess was based on something in a history book that had WHT going up against Gifford Pinchot. It was just a guess, and as I suspected, he wasn't the Interior Secretary:

Quote from: wikipedia
Taft's obsession with the law over politics created more trouble for him in the well noted dispute between his Interior Secretary, Richard Achilles Ballinger, and the Chief of the Forestry Service, Gifford Pinchot.

It goes on to discussing Pinchot having someone sue Ballinger, blah blah blah, etc. But not a correct guess. I'll be looking though.
