When Hospitality & Politics Meet...

It has been such the political month around here. First, Samantha Power, foreign policy advisor for Obama, lunches with us at Fish. Then, over at The William Aiken House, we played host to a press conference for Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour and former Oklahoma Congressman Brad Carson during which they announced their support for Barack Obama.

Then, Goldman hits me with the news of his possible run for Vice Presidency of the U.S. on the Colbert ticket. While I'm at it, here are some Vice Presidential Fun Facts:
  • 2 VPs shot a man while in office: Aaron Burr & Dick Cheney

  • 3 VPs were the target of assassination attempts (all 3 unsuccessful)

  • 3 VPs became Nobel Peace Prize Laureates: Teddy Roosevelt, Charles Gates Dawes & Al Gore

  • 2 VPs resigned: John C. Calhoun (went to the Senate) & Spiro Agnew (no contest to pesky bribery charges)

Call me crazy, but I think that proves there is A LOT of room for improvement, vice presidentially speaking, that is.
