Running Mates: Introduction


We’re launching a new podcast here at The Postrider as part of our Running Mates project dedicated to the American vice presidency, those who have held it, vied for it, and perhaps are destined for it. The Running Mates podcast will cover every modern presidential election starting with 1968 through the lens of the vice presidential candidates, as Michael and I discuss whether the vice presidential picks made sense, could have been stronger in hindsight, and who might have been a better choice.

Our introductory episode is below to kick us off, so please subscribe and stay tuned for our first episode on the Edmund Muskie versus Spiro Agnew vice presidential election of 1968.
