He was VP when I was born and one of my earliest political memories is of him being the 1984 Democratic presidential nominee. I remember hoping he would win, not because I had real political views at age 6, but because that is the age we are taught to take turns and I figured Reagan had his turn. He and Jimmy Carter held the record for longest surviving ticket post-presidency at 40 years and three months. He died today at age 93. His other offices included AG of MN (1960-1964), US Senator from MN (1964-1976), and US Ambassador to Japan (1993-1996). He was the replacement nominee for Paul Wellstone for US Senate in 2002.
