Über diesen Titel
Everyone knows the requirements for President of the U.S.--leadership, vision, and airtight alibis dating back to junior high. But just what does it take to be vice-president? As Steve Tally tells it in Blind Ambition, a sly look at our vice-presidents, from John Adams to Dan Quayle, is more outrageous than any modern smear campaign concoction.From Library Journal:
Yes, it's true, very often in our nation's history, the second-highest official has been nothing more than an outright crook. That is, when he's not been an adulterer, booze hound, or, more usually, a party hack from way back. In Tally's genuinely entertaining and informative history of all 44 (so far) vice presidents, we learn how each of these men has seen his "bland ambition" fulfilled. Given the number of times a vice president has been elevated to the Oval Office upon the death or resignation of a president, it's amazing how little thought has been given to a veep's qualifications for that responsibility. The nation survives--again, so far. This book is a good value for libraries, both for its content and its price.
