Weren't Whigs supportive of a one-term promise? And Harrison was already one of the oldest elected Presidents of his time so I personally believe he would be a one-termer had he lived.

Date of Birth: August 22, 1787
Date of Death: February 24, 1879 (age 91)
Political Party: Democratic-Republican (until 1832), Democratic (after 1832)

List of Offices Held:
Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Kentucky's 6th district (March 4, 1813 – March 3, 1817)

Sharp avoids his assassination from OTL in 1825 and goes on to become the governor of Kentucky. Later on, Jackson recruits him instead of Van Buren to be his running mate in the 1832 election, leading him to essentially take Van Buren's role as both VP and President from OTL.
