There was more attention than usual given to the vice presidential candidates in this year's election. Of course, it's important to know something about the Joe Bidens and Sarah Palins since they could end up in the Oval Office. Truth is, though, most vice presidential candidates are forgotten pretty fast.
Just go back 20 years. George Bush I was Ronald Reagan's vice president, but who did Bush pick for his? And, what Democrat did Bush run against in 1988, and who was that fellow's vice presidential pick?
