"A history of American vice-presidents that looks at the unusual position of the vice president throughout history--how the office was created and how it has changed over the years...from Adams and Jefferson to Truman and Quayle."
"Eight sitting VPs-roughly one in five-have been called onto assume the presidency of the United States.
Of the past 10 vps, five went onto the Oval Office.
Of those 5, 3 ascended suddenly to the presidency in moments of national crises.
With odds like these, it is time for a serious look at the way we choose our vise presidents."
