How come there isn't a "Vice President's Day"?

Oh but even now I can hear a chorus of political scientists intoning "Because Every Day is Vice President's Day"... And truly it wouldn't be true if it wasn't a cliche', because every day is fraught with the potential for greatness when one occupies an office noted for it's mirthful superfluity, a nullity, a vacuity awesome, butt of every joke, the first in line at the overseas State Funeral, The Gavel in the US Senate, the Forgotten Office in the West Wing, The National Chamber of Commerce's Featured Speaker and the Great White Father of Counterfactuals. President Humphrey, President Agnew, President Calhoun and who can ever forget, President Curtis?? What Statesman...What Nonsense.
