Fred makes mention that Frank Sinatra lost his chance at the Vice Presidency. He is referring to something that was happening in the Nixon administration at the time. Sinatra had been close friends with Spiro Agnew, Nixon's vice president. When Agnew resigned after a bribery charge, several candidates were discussed as possible candidate to take his place and one, very briefly, was Sinatra. The job, of course, ultimately went to Gerald Ford.See more »
