1976 also marked the introduction of vice presidential debates which have regularly been held since 1984.Let’s be honest: rarely do voters pay attention and rarely are these debates memorable.There is, however, one exception.In the 1988 debate between Dan Quayle and Lloyd Bentsen, Quayle suggested he had as much experience as former President John F. Kennedy. Bentsen retorted with the now famous lines, “Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy. I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you’re no Jack Kennedy.”
