Who was the first vice president of the U.S.?

  • Thomas Jefferson
  • John Adams correct

    Everyone knows that the first president of the United States was George Washington but not everyone knows who the first VP is! Did you know that Vice President was not originally appointed by the president but was actually the first runner up for presidency? That means that we almost could have had John Adams as the first president of US and not George Washington. See? There is something for being second place!
