1:5 say Cheney worst VP ever, who is #2?

One of out of five Americans think that Dick Cheney is the worst vice president in American history. Twenty-three percent of those questioned in a CNN-Opinion Research Corporation survey released Tuesday say that Cheney is the country’s worst vice president, when compared to his predecessors. Another 41 percent feel that Cheney is a poor vice president, with 34 percent rating him a good number two. Only 1 percent of those polled say that Cheney is the best vice president in U.S. history.

Whether he’s worst, poor, good or best, he is 1 on a list of 1. Is there even another VP about whom this question could be asked? Quick, name another VP who did not move up to president who had any real impact on the nation? I suppose you have to go with Spiro Agnew if only because he was indicted and replaced in office. Beyond that it is impossible to think of anything that noxious man even did.

So is the list

  1. Cheney
  2. Agnew
  3. Everyone else?

Let us then give Mr. Cheney credit for disproving John Nance Garner (32nd VP) who said that being VP is “not worth a bucket of warm piss.” Let that be his epitaph: “Dick Cheney — he made the VP worthy of a bucket of warm piss.”

  1. i respect that but he didn’t actually DO anything. It’s a job with only two responsibilities — cast a vote when the senate is tied and be alive in case someone else dies. Even Mr. Quayle was successful on both those counts.
