Screen Shot 2016-01-23 at 2.38.28 PMThere are many in the country who are so vehemently opposed to Hillary Clinton that they are hitching their wagons to Trump, who however awful is seen as a “change agent.” Generally overlooked in presidential politics is the issue of the “running mate.”  Even with recent experience of the power of Cheney in the Bush administration, and the power of Palin in the failed McCain run. The assumption of the “errand boy” VP, may be a fatal one. Trump could end up a figurehead of state (not to imply in any way that he would lose the power of the Presidency) the hand behind the throne could be significant. Unfortunately, it is highly possible to the point of  likely that the real power will be delegated to the second in command – Mike Pence.

This is a scenario that people would do well to consider. Would they feel better voting for Pence for vice PRESIDENT? For as Trump has no elected political vita, Pence certainly does, and it is hard to find anyone who is much deeper into the fake grassroots Tea Party camp than Michael Pence – nor many more closely linked to the Koch brothers.

One thought on “If You Are Setting Your Hopes on Trump, How About Pence?

  1. All that may be true but it should be obvious that the Trump campaign is that of class warfare where white male (and female) workers are absconding from the Democrats because of the previous dire Clinton and Obama administrations, whereby they suffered as their incomes declined significantly. They are the ones called by Hillary a ‘basket of deplorables’ which is as significant as the title ‘les miserables’. Hillary’s campaign is an elitist one, supported by the establishment and a liberal section of US society.
