Biden could also be an answer to the last question. He did not run in 2016 following his two terms as Vice President. I guess it depends on how you word the question. Certainly Cheney did not run in 2008 or anytime thereafter. Quayle did not run in 1996 or anytime thereafter (he lost as VP on the ticket in 92 to Clinton/Gore).

Gardner said "the vice presidency isn't worth a warm bucket of piss." (Not spirit)

4:46 p.m. the vice-presidency is worth a lot of buckets of diamonds when the president has dementia and the speaker of the house is already preheating the 25th Amendment oven for him.
