"Under every stone lurks a politician."
Aristophanes (450 BC - 388 BC), Thesmophoriazusae, 410 B.C.
I was amused by that. Look under the stone, you'll find Cheney!
Seriously, though, the vice presidency is seen as the most worthless position in all of Washington, because for 4 to 8 years, your opinion disappears
and becomes the president's. The Veep doesn't do anything but meet with people, go places the President doesn't have time to go to, and, in
debate with the president on issues they disagree on.
And to close,
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who
neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."
Teddy Roosevelt. Speech before the Hamilton Club, Chicago, April 10, 1899
