Round two of Veep Valentines. I had great help from my friend Jim Rossi, a history teacher who loves Vice Presidential jokes even more than I do. Jim suggested many of the Vice Presidents in this batch and wrote or had a major hand in writing the text on the Johnson, Nixon, Burr, and Coolidge Valentines.
My son has a Valentine’s Day party at school this week. I inwardly groaned when I thought of buying Valentine’s cards that are little more than advertisements for film or superhero franchises. I wondered what would be an odd alternative to Iron Man or Yoda?
I present that answer: Veep Valentines, featuring some of the men who served as Vice President of the United States. They had only two Constitutional duties. They lived only a heartbeat away from the top office in the land. They will forever be in our hearts.
