    All Vice Presidents are do nothing Vice Presidents. They are constitutionally empowered to do two things:
    1) be alive. (And technically I dont think the constitution requires this)
    2) cast a tiebreaker vote in the senate, which doesn't happen much and only rarely over something significant

    Because he has some heavy successful business experience so he knows the issues and problems associated with that, he has proved his ability to assess problems and address them in a constructive way, i.e. the 2002 Olympics, and he has demonstrated political skills and willingness and ability to build consensus and get things done regardless of the political party in power and within the existing laws. Who else is running who can claim those kinds of credentials?

    He ran multiple times. He did win again in 1904.

    He never ran before he was elected as McKinley's VP. He assumed the job when McKinley was killed. He ran for re-election in 1904 and won.

    He ran again in 1912 on the Bull Moose Party ticket. He finished second, 14 points behind Wilson.

    I don't care if the President is purple with orange spots and I don't care how old he/she is. But I would like to have somebody who doesn't have to learn everything on the job, most especially when he/she doesn't have any aptitude to learn it.

    Good thing Gores daddy didnt leave him a wealthy man. Of course Kerry married money (and good on him...anyone willing to marry that yeti for her millions deserves that money). But it IS interesting how readily liberals cite wealth as if it were a 'bad' thing...especially when it comes to republican candidates...while ignoring that the wealthiest politicians are in fact...democrats.

    Which President in the last 50 years ran for POTUS twice, and lost both times, and then came back to win on try #3?
    The way Romney could win is having the electorate making up for the obvious mistake they made last time when they either supported Barrack Obama or didn't sufficiently get out the vote. The Republicans could do what the Democrats did in tying Romney to Bush.

    In the next election they could connect whatever Dem candidate there is to Barrack Obama, and if Hillary gets the nomination that would not be a problem. Any Democrat challenger would have difficulty distancing themselves from the destructive policies of Barrack Obama.
