Summary
Tyler, Fillmore, A. Johnson, Arthur, Truman: Happenstance has played its part in politics and the presidency, with nearly a quarter of U.S. presidents succeeding a deceased predecessor. Often selected for reasons other than suitability for office, they still exercised its powers in full. Only one of these five former vice presidents gained election to the presidency in his own right, yet each made his presence felt at critical moments
