    Its been like forever since a sitting congressman was elected to either Prez or Veep.

    I believe FDR's first VP, John N Garner, was the last one to do so. And he was not you typical member seeing as he was speaker. Heck after saying the job wasn't worth a bucket of piss, perhaps he should have stayed as speaker.
