wha does "lead the ticket"mean? oppose to the vice-president?
During the next century death elevated six more Vice Presidents— Millard Fillmore, Andrew Johnson, Chester Arthur, Theodore Roosevelt, Calvin Coolidge, and Harry Truman—and the claims of each to "the said Office" were uncontested.

Roosevelt and Truman excepted, the six were an uninspiring and undistinguished group.
