When he was nominated as vice president on the 1880 Republican ticket, Chester Alan Arthur had never held elected office. Expectations of him—or of the vice presidential office—were virtually non-existant. Years earlier in 1839, Daniel Webster had turned down the vice presidency with the quip, “I do not propose to be buried until I am dead.”
