    Probably Truman. He became President and had to make some of the most difficult decisions but during one of the greatest times in this nation's history. Not just dealing with dropping atomic bombs on Japan to their eventual surrender, but also dealt with everyone coming home with the Employment Act of 1946, handling Henry Wallace, and the Truman Doctrine to deal with Communism in several European nations, and the Marshall plan to deal with all the economic problems of a war torn Europe. I am not defending every decision he made nor every single thing he said... just saying he had to deal with a very difficult time period for the US and the World, there should be credit for that.

    Just factoring in their terms as VP, or their overall careers?

    If we're doing their overall careers than probably Jefferson followed by Roosevelt with Truman farther down in 3rd.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    To be honest, I don't even know how to weigh a VP's performance.

    Where's Biden?

    He keeps me laughing, he wins. Also, he can really rock aviators.

    Seth Meyers asks Joe Biden about SOTU ‘finger guns’ - The Washington Post

    Seth Meyers to Joe Biden: “My favorite performance of yours all year: State of the Union. Just killing it at the State of the Union. So many finger guns. If there was a NRA for finger guns, you would be the president.”
