The Vice President, Secretary of State, and Foreign Policy
Paul Kengor examines the influence of the secretary of state in affecting the vice president's role in foreign policy. He focuses on the relationship between vice presidents Dan Quayle and Al Gore and the secretaries of state in their administrations. While acknowledging that the president is most critical in determining a vice president's foreign-policy role, Kengor shows that the role of the secretary of state can be a vital factor in the vice president's ultimate level of involvement.
