Vice President Rockefeller

In the Opinion page column "Slowly, a New Image for Quayle," Jan. 28, the author writes that "every vice president since 1952, with the exception of Spiro Agnew, has become the presidential nominee of his party."

This is incorrect. Nelson Rockefeller, who served as vice president from 1974 to 1977, was never the Republican presidential nominee. Jack El-Hai, Minnetonka, Minn.
