Dustcover shows light wear (NO tears). From Publishers Weekly: Five of the last nine U.S. presidents first served as vice-presidents. This statistic, argues syndicated columnist Witcover, makes clear the recklessness of George Bush's choice of J. Danforth Quayle as his running mate. Most of the book is an astute, scathingly ironic history of vice-presidential politics--generally colorful, if at times inevitably tinged with the dullness that clings to that office. All presidential nominees claimed that their choice for v-p was the person "best qualified" to become president if destiny dictated, but in nearly all cases, the author demonstrates, the selection was motivated by either the need for geographical balance on the party ticket, the desire for a subservient yes-man or similarly short-sighted considerations. Witcover ( Whose Broad Stripes and Bright Stars? ) proposes that presidential nominees be required to submit a list of potential running mates for review by the national convention. Alternately, the president-elect might submit vice-presidential choices to Congress for approval. Witcover's suggested reforms should stir national debate. Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal: If for no other reason, Dan Quayle deserves credit for raising the vice presidency to the forefront of presidential politics. Supporting the view of John Nance Garner, Franklin Delano Roosevelt's first vice president, who said, "it wasn't worth a bucket of warm spit," some politicians and political scientists, as well as historians (notably Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr.) want the office abolished. Unfortunately, the public remains largely indifferent. Witcover, a prolific journalist, covers all these points in a most readable and comprehensive treatment of the vice presidency from 1789 to the present. He notes that Jimmy Carter's selection and treatment of his running mate is the model for the modern presidency. In conclusion, Witcover wants presidents to be held responsible for what amounts to their first decision. Recommended for all political collections. - William D.

Item Description: Times Books. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 192 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.6in. x 0.8in.A provocative reconsideration of a presidency on the brink of Civil WarAlmost no president was as well trained and well prepared for the office as James Buchanan. He had served in the Pennsylvania state legislature, the U. S. House, and the U. S. Senate; he was Secretary of State and was even offered a seat on the Supreme Court. And yet, by every measure except his own, James Buchanan was a miserable failure as president, leaving office in disgrace. Virtually all of his intentions were thwarted by his own inability to compromise: he had been unable to resolve issues of slavery, caused his party to split-thereby ensuring the election of the first Republican president, Abraham Lincoln-and made the Civil War all but inevitable. Historian Jean H. Baker explains that we have rightly placed Buchanan at the end of the presidential rankings, but his poor presidency should not be an excuse to forget him. To study Buchanan is to consider the implications of weak leadership in a time of national crisis. Elegantly written, Bakers volume offers a balanced look at a crucial moment in our nations history and explores a man who, when given the opportunity, failed to rise to the challenge.
