Vice President

All this talk of "would you want Sarah Palin as President?" has got me reflecting on who has been our vice president in the past.

In my lifetime we have had:

Richard Nixon, Lyndon Johnson, Hubert Humphrey, Spiro Agnew, Gerald Ford, Nelson Rockefeller, Walter Mondale, George Bush, Dan Quayle, Al Gore, Dick Cheney.

Would I want any of these as President? At the time I voted for them, I thought so.

Over the past several years I have visited many of the Presidential Libraries. It has given me some prespective on who some of these men were. We always know more in hindsight. It is not always easy to know what to think now.
