'President Bell' has a certain ring to it, IMO.

Totally agree. The first name Wendell didn't help much either.

Yeah, Alf Landon would be the best. He had one of the coolest middle names ever: Mossman

Speaking of middle names, some of the vice-presidential candidates had some really awesome middle names, among them:
Jack French Kemp
James Schoolcraft Sherman
Lloyd Millard Bentsen
Edmund Sixtus Muskie
Henry Gassaway Davis
Herschel Vespasian Johnson
Allen Granberry Thurman
Joseph Isadore Lieberman
Charles Linza McNary

Spiro Agnew

True, Spiro Agnew was never a presidential candidate, however, if he had not been a crook, he would have become the 38th President.

Trust Nixon to pick another crook as his VP.

I always thought President Humphrey sounded good.  Or President Stevenson.  But not President Mondale or President Dole.  My personal Preferance: President Seymour.  But that's because my name is Seymour.

I wish the Dems had nominated Alan Bible (1909-1988) (D-NV) and that Bible had picked Idaho Sen. Frank Church. Then it would be the Bible-Church ticket.
