Pet projects

The.... sad news of Joe's impending retirement reminded me of an odd quirk. He was almost nominated twice to be Vice President, once by each party. And that Joe Lieberman was almost President twice reminded me of my pet old idea

Which went nowhere .

Anybody actually care who Joe Biden is? How about Thomas Marshall? If nobody cared all that much to replace William King when he died in office even faster than Harrison had (and was already being sworn in while in Cuba for health reasons), I don't see why we really need somebody to do the job. I mean, Pierce practically picked a corpse to be his VP as it was.
