What year did the president and vice president start running together on a ticket?
From what I recall, the winner of the presidential election became president and the loser became vice president. what year did this change to where the president and vice president run together on one ticket? I'd assume that having someone from one party as president and another party as vice was problematic at times. Any further history on this subject would be appreciated.
I dont know but know that Lincoln's vp was the guy that lost against him.
I really don't know either, but what an interesting concept. The role of the vice president has been somewhat insignificant (with exceptions, of course), as far back as I can remember. it certainly would be a challenge in today's volatile election scenario. Hard to imagine McCain/Obama or Obama/McCain. Maybe not?
