The National Portrait gallery presents this exhibition on U.S. Vice Presidents. The web site consists of two major sections: a gallery of Vice Presidents who became president, and a set of videotaped interviews of four of the five living former Vice Presidents (missing is Al Gore - scheduling conflicts prevented his participation). The gallery begins with John Adams, George Washington's Vice President, and ends with George H. W. Bush. In between are former Vice Presidents as well known as LBJ, and as little known as Chester Arthur. Each entry in the gallery is illustrated with photographs, campaign posters, and cartoons, with explanatory text. For example, the text accompanying a photograph of Harry Truman playing a piano with Lauren Bacall perched on top watching him points out that a Vice President's duties often consisted of social events. Text alongside a photo of John F. Kennedy with a shadowy Lyndon Johnson behind him quotes LBJ, "The vice presidency is filled with trips around the world, chauffeurs, men saluting, people clapping ... but in the end it is nothing. I detested every minute of it."
