It would be hard to argue that this presidential election cycle is one like few living voters have ever seen before.

• The first time in decades a presidential candidate has refused to reveal his tax returns;
• The first time the spouse of a former president has run for president;
• The first in which both candidates have campaigned under a cloud of major legal entanglements, be it FBI investigations or lawsuits for fraud and more.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
