16. I found it strange that he was running for his House seat in addition to VP..

 

As if he was expected to lose the latter, and just hedged his bets. Isn't it something of an unofficial tradition for the candidates to abdicate their lesser positions when running for the Pres/VP? I may be wrong on this, there are possibly easy examples to the contrary that I am not thinking of at the moment.. (John Kerry running for President, and yet he is still a Senator--perhaps not same election year?)

Not a total loss for him, I suppose, he can still wreck plenty of havoc in that position and keep things mightily hamstrung for the next few years.
