Answering Terry Przybylskis presidential trivia question who was the only Catholic ever to be on the Republican national ticket? Reader WPD answers correctly: Miller. But he cant remember the first name. It was, of course, William E. Miller, a Congressman from upstate New York Lockport and a graduate of Notre Dame. He ran for vice president with Barry Goldwater and had been chairman of the Republican Congressional Campaign committee. After he lost he did a TV commercial for American Express saying, Do you know who I am? Few did.
In answer to Terrys second question who was the only Polish American ever to be on a major partys national ticket?. Reader and good friend Pat Hickey has the answer: Edmund Muskie. He was a Senator from Maine and ran in 1968 as vice president with Hubert Humphrey. No one got the original Muskie nameMarciszewski.
