In his speech, seconding the nomination of George Bush for president, Sen. Phil Gramm (R-Texas) called him "the greatest vice president this nation ever had." While that assertion might garner Gramm some brownie points for artistic hyperbole in campaign rhetoric, it would also get him a few demerits for his half-hearted historical research. There is a whole catalogue of vice presidential names that would challenge Gramm's term, "the greatest"--and I list here just a few: John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, John C. Calhoun, Millard Fillmore, Andrew Johnson, Adlai E. Stevenson, Theodore Roosevelt, Harry Truman, etc. HARRY CIMRING Los Angeles

MEXICO CITY - El Salvador's presidential runoff was so close Sunday night that election officials declined to name a winner until a final count Monday. Adding to the confusion of the evening, left- and right-wing parties each declared victory, while conservative candidate Norman Quijano, who was trailing by just a few thousand votes, alleged in a blistering speech that the count was fraudulent. With nearly 3 million votes tallied - more than 99% of the total - Quijano, of the right-wing Arena party, was trailing Vice President Salvador Sanchez Ceren, who was a leftist guerrilla during the country's civil war, by 4,403 votes, according to the country's Supreme Electoral Tribunal.
