We look at the Vice President who - maybe - described the office as a "bucket of warm spit." That's a bit more questionable than some accounts, even my own podcast, makes it out to be. (He never said it directly to any reporter).
The sometimes supporter of the New Deal and sometimes not VP may have been its most powerful VP occupant up to his time. And he's responsible in a little way for making two President's careers. He's also the first Vice President to campaign against the President, though since the President wasn't officially campaigning at the time, perhaps it doesn't count.
