Overheard at work: "When has anyone ever cared so much about the Vice President? Usually they're just a couple of jokers sitting around talking about education reform or whatever - nobody cares. This is one of the most fun elections, ever."
Nobody cares? Did no one care when Geraldine Ferraro was chosen as a running mate? Hmmm, maybe not. I wonder why that might be - oh, wait, I know; it was because she was actually qualified for the job,. Got it.
