Who are the worst American Vice-Presidents? This is a tough one. It is hard to tell because the Vice-President has so little actual power.
I found an amusing blog post on this question. At The Powdered Wig, Matt K. has a list. It includes:
- William Rufus King
- John C. Calhoun
- John C. Breckinridge
- Spiro Agnew
- Aaron Burr
- Dick Cheney
It is interesting to note the President George W. Bush has proclaimed Dick Cheney the best Vice-President ever. And Spiro Agnew and Aaron Burr came close to being President. This is a tough one to call.
Any thoughts on this? This could make for a good poll question in the future.
