He Said On Leno He Would Never Run Again

Just like Gore after 2000, he realized he had his one chance and wouldn't be given another one.

Question: Are Nixon and Dewey the only candidates to receive the Democratic or Republican nomination for president, lose in the general election, and then in a subsequent election receive the nomination for a second time?

Certainly I can't think of anyone else in the past 75 years or so who received his party's nomination a second time after losing the general election.
