(Her husband, John Zaccaro, pled guilty to fraudulently obtaining bank financing in a real estate transaction.) That was 36 years before America managed to elect a female vice president. Few cultural shifts have been as seismic as the one that occurred in the veep’s office since Biden moved into the White House.
