From The Vault: Nixon Named Elvis VP
Life in the Twilight Zone
From the vault of the Washington Star, Richard Nixon secretly named Elvis Presley as his nominee to replace Vice President Spiro Agnew, who was forced to resign in 1973. Presley is shown here in a publicity photo that was to be released just after the announcement was made public.
Sadly, Presley died a few days later at Graceland, forcing Nixon to pick the first guy who walked into the Oval Office. That is how Jerry Ford became President of the United States.
Oh, by the way, the Nats lost again, 10-5. Nothing good to report, so I wont [well, maybe later].
