"The vice-presidency of the United States is probably the least respected and understood of all constitutionally mandated positions within government. After all, in the political dynamic, the vice-president (VP) appears almost irrelevant. And yet, fourteen VPs eventually became president, some through assuming a vacated office and others through election." (12/13/11)
