The candidate in lowest place may turn out to be a "dark horse" on whom all factions may prefer to agree.

RONR 11th edition page 441 lines 8-10.

This is the one that comes to mind. There may be more. And now that I think of it, perhaps I should have been more helpful by having a comprehensive list at the ready. Yuk.

I understand the concept of what is being suggested, but both examples given are very familiar terms with a long history in America. The same is true of those picturesque military expressions that appear here and there, such as a motion "falling to the ground" like a soldier who has been shot on the battlefield. In all these cases, the average American reader of the book takes a draught of American parliamentary history. I'm in favor of preserving them.

A potential compromise would seem to be to include definitions of these terms, such as in a footnote.
