4 sitting Vice Presidents have on their own been elected to office. That's less than 10 percent.
9 sitting Vice Presidents have been thrust into office because of death or resignation of the current President. That's over 20 percent.

This is what we should be talking about instead of all this other mess. We are told that McCain would make a better executive yet we are told to not consider his first swipe at the decision making process every executive of every business in the world has to consider - the ability of a potential successor. Really.
I'll be on Wilson's show in the morning. Wonder what we are going to talk about.
