Everyone knows the requirements for President of the U.S.--leadership, vision, and airtight alibis dating back to junior high. But just what does it take to be vice-president? As Steve Tally tells it in Blind Ambition, a sly look at our vice-presidents, from John Adams to Dan Quayle, is more outrageous than any modern smear campaign concoction.
