U.S. Vice President
    (May 11, 1852-June 4, 1918)
    U.S. Senator for Indiana (1897-1905)
    Vice President of the United States (1905-1909)
    He was a lawyer for railroad interests in the Midwest before becoming interested in politics.
    He was seen as a successor to President McKinley, and after his assassination resented Theodore Roosevelt's position as the new president.
    He wanted to be the president of the United States and only accepted the vice presidency to somehow achieve that goal.
    He controlled the press in Indiana by secretly owning the largest stakes in its most popular newspaper.
    He bought out a major opposition newspaper to silence the dissension to his party.
    He spent freely on political causes, and endeared himself to the Republicans through his wealth.
    He favored restricting immigration.
    He had a monstrous mustache.
    He took only six months to complete his courses and pass the bar.
    He was an important second banana for Republicans with his support making or breaking electoral considerations in the industrial states of the Midwest.
    He was called the 'Indiana Icicle' for the popular perception of him being cold and lacking charisma which was mostly false.
    He was a talented individual who had to put up with being second best to a great president.
    He waited in political shadows his whole life, never getting what he really wanted.
