Smithsonian: VICE PRESIDENTS and POLITICAL MEMORABILIA

Friday, October 2nd, 2020

As America closes in on one of the most momentous and controversial presidential elections of modern history, the Smithsonian Institution provides unique context into presidential conventions and the key role of the Vice President on Thursday 8th Octover at 9pm. In this current election, with septuagenarian presidential candidates, the choice of both Vice Presidents has been especially critical – which is of little surprise to historians: 14 Vice Presidents have become President.
