Garret A. Hobart: Vice President, Once

When you think of vice presidents, who immediately springs to mind? Well, Joe Biden. But then who? Yeah, Dick Cheney, of course. And OK, Al Gore, and Walter Mondale, and the first George Bush, and Gerald Ford, and Harry Truman, and Nixon. Thomas Jefferson. John Adams. OK, but eventually, you think of Garret A. Hobart, right? No? Me, neither.

Here are a few more facts about Garret A. Hobart:

  • Also, you know who else springs to mind before Garret A. Hobart? Schuyler Colfax. Andrew Johnson. That guy who was Taft’s vice president. Hubert Humphrey.
  • Heck, even John Fremont, and I’m not even sure he WAS vice president, was he? He would have been a good one, though.
  • I mean, I could probably name more Secretaries of Agriculture before coming up with Garret A. Hobart. What a Hobart.
