Two-parter: Worst VP choice, and Worst VP

Originally posted at huckelburgers

Strange parallel conversations last night lead to the following scintillating two-part question:

1. Who was the worst Vice-Presidential selection ever?

2. Who was the worst Vice-President ever?

Now, the word "worst" can mean a lot of different things, so to simplify it, I'll define "worst" differently for the two questions.

1. Who was the worst Vice-Presidential selection ever - whether the person was elected or not - where by "worst" we mean a poor choice on the part of the Presidential nominee because the VP selection wound up being a bad addition to the ticket, an embarrassing Vice-President, or just an all-around laughingstock?

2. Who was the worst Vice-President ever, where by "worst" we mean, if we were to rate in terms of performance as a candidate and/or incumbent, we would say, this person was simply bad, vile, a disgrace to the office?

Provide as many answers as you like. I'll offer my own choices later.
