Presidential Trivia

As we drank our beers last night and waited for results to come in, we got to talking about predidential elections of yore. And tried to recall various footnotes in the process. We got stuck a few times, bailed out (mostly) by Shane who has an encyclopedic memory for this stuff. Some places we got stuck:

* Mike Dukakis' running mate (Lloyd Bentsen)
* Who ran againt Reagan in 1984 (Walter Mondale) and his running mate (Geraldine Ferraro)
* Who was Gerald Ford's VP (Nelson Rockefeller, replaced by Bob Dole for the '76 election)
* Dole's running mate (Jack Kemp)
