Wiki

James Danforth "Dan" Quayle (pronounced /ˈkweɪl/; born February 4, 1947) served as the 44th Vice President of the United States, serving with President George H. W. Bush (1989–1993). He served as a U.S. Representative and U.S. Senator from the state of Indiana.

Quayle was born in Indianapolis but spent most of his childhood living in Arizona. He obtained his J.D. from Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis in 1974 and married Marilyn Tucker in 1972. He practiced law in Huntington, Indiana with his wife before being elected to the United States Congress in 1976, aged 29. In 1980, Quayle entered the Senate.

In 1988, incumbent U.S. Vice-President and Republican presidential candidate George H. W. Bush called upon Quayle to be his running mate in the forthcoming election. Although this choice was met with some dismay, the Bush/Quayle ticket won the 1988 Election over Democrat Michael Dukakis. Making official visits to 47 countries and being appointed chairman of the National Space Council, Quayle's vice-presidency was considered to be very eventful. He secured re-nomination for vice-president in 1992 but the Bush/Quayle ticket was defeated by Democrat Bill Clinton and his vice-presidential nominee, Al Gore.
