Vice President

He was elected Vice President of the United States on the Democratic ticket with Franklin Pierce in 1852 and took the oath of office March 4, 1853 in Cuba, where he had gone because of his health.

Legacy

In honor of his inauguration as Vice President, the newly formed Washington Territory was named King County for him, as well as Pierce County after President Pierce, in hopes of gaining speedy admission to the Union by currying favor with the new administration (Washington did not become a state until 1889). King County still exists, but on February 24, 1986 the county council passed Motion 6461, "setting forth the historical basis for the 'renaming' of King County in honor of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr." On April 19, 2005, Washington State Governor Christine Gregoire signed Senate Bill 5332 into law, formalizing the prior resolution and officially designating King County's name to be in honor of Martin Luther King.

Some historians have speculated that King may have been gay, and that he had a long-term intimate relationship with President-to-be James Buchanan (it is not disputed that the two lived together for 16 years in Washington, D.C.). It is also said that King's detractors in the Senate referred to him as "Miss Nancy" (which was actually a term that referred to homosexual men in the 19th century). The theory is controversial and a source of debate among Buchanan and King historians. Historian and author James W. Loewen is one of the theory's better-known proponents. The word homosexuality had acquired multiple meanings over time. ... James Buchanan (April 23, 1791 – June 1, 1868) was the 15th president of the United States (1857–1861). ...
