Why does the president pick the vice president?

The Presidential Candidate's main purpose in picking the Vice President is "balancing the ticket." To "balance the ticket" is to find a VP Candidate that deposits values into a Presidential campaign that will bring support from voters that were not previously inclined to vote for that candidate. In most every United States presidential election within the past 30 years, the presidential candidate chose a VP candidate with almost opposite views and beliefs so that they might hoard the votes.

First president elected by original democratic-Republican Party?

What event brought about the need for the compromise of 1877?

Reconstruction politics meant that the electoral votes of three Southern states were disputed in the Presidential election of 1876, preventing either candidate from achieving a majority. The "Compromise of 1877" was a suspected informal agreement that gave Rutherford Hayes the Presidency in exchange for the relaxation of Reconstruction in the South. The Democratic candidate, Samuel J. Tilden, otherwise would have won the election of 1876, having the lead in both the popular and electoral votes. The "corrupt bargain" in the House mirrored the situation in the election of 1824 where John Quincy Adams was elected in a race that had four candidates. The South regained their mostly Democratic governments and began a long history of voting as a bloc (the Solid South) to achieve political aims.
