Warm Bucket Brigade: The Story of the American Vice President
Jeremy Lott (au)
The vice pres. (V.P.) isn’t worth “a bucket of warm spit.” That’s what John Nance Garner had to say about the office -- several years after serving as VP under FDR. Lott’s sweeping, hilarious, and insightful history introduces readers to the sometimes shadowy cast of characters that have occupied it, such as: Aaron Burr, tried for treason; Andrew Johnson, defiant drunkard; Thomas Marshall, who should have been pres.; Richard Nixon, underdog and daredevil; Al Gore, the most frustrated man in America; and, of course, the real Dick Cheney. Lott focuses on their rivalries and ambitions, their victories and setbacks. “The V.P. is an invaluable political institution that tends to frustrate the ambitions of America’s most ambitious politicians.” Illustrations.
