Walter Frederick Mondale (born January 5, 1928 in Ceylon, Minnesota) was the 42nd Vice President of the United States under President Jimmy Carter, and the unsuccessful Democratic nominee in the 1984 Presidential Election, suffering a landslide defeat to Ronald Reagan, the second largest after George McGovern's loss in 1972. Prior to that, Mondale was a United States Senator from Minnesota from 1964 to 1976 and was the Democrats' replacement nominee for the Minnesota United States Senatorial election in 2002, where he lost by a small margin to Norm Coleman.
