Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan
Anyone who thinks that the vice-president can take a position independent of the president of his administration simply has no knowledge of politics or government. You are his choice in a political marriage, and he expects your absolute loyalty.
Hubert H. Humphrey
I was student council president in high school, and even in law school, I was vice-president of the student bar association.
The vice-president of an advertising agency is a bit of executive fungus that forms on a desk that has been exposed to conference.
Steve Jobs was rare: a C.E.O. who actually had a huge impact on his company's fortunes. Contrary to corporate mythology, most C.E.O.s could be easily replaced, if not by your average Joe, then by your average executive vice-president. But Jobs genuinely earned the label of superstar.

I got to be White House chief of staff, ten years of congressman, secretary of defense, vice-president.

And I'll let others judge whether they liked it or not.
