    against DT ahead of the 2020 presidential election. If she did, she’s got my vote.

    Not gonna happen. Even though I thought she was an outstanding US delegate to the UN, she is still basically a RINO.

    I agree 100%. I was really hoping she would. I think her calculus is that she eventually will, but that there are a lot of DT supporters that would resent her for it and then she'd ruin her long term potential. And you have to admit, for everything that is wrong with DT, his fundraising is more than all the Democrats combined - she would have to overcome that.

    Personally, I think she could - the media would give her Billions in free airtime because they would love it. She would peel off a ton of independents across the country who aren't really enamored with DT, but who don't want the socialism/communism infantile policy positions of most on the left of free everything even if you're not here legally.

    I would recommend she run against DT too, because integrity-wise, I'd rather be known as the person who at least tried, and failed, than to have never tried at all. Knowing I waited until it was easier when Trump was gone is not a legacy I'd want for myself. Furthermore, what if DT loses, then she might have to wait 8 more years, and so on.

    Lol at Dems that cross over to vote in GOP primaries. That helped Trump win several states. Good job.

    She is way too smart to do that. She and Trump both seem to like and respect each other. She definitely has a future, so why sacrifice that future now?

    Running against him could certainly hurt his chances in the general. It would be impossible to beat him since as the POTUS he will control the entire nomination process. It is a lose lose situation for anyone serious about holding an office in the future. She will have her chance in 2024 when DT is done.....I don't think Pence has a chance.

    The real threat to both parties would be a legitimate 3rd party / independent candidate running in the general election. A Ross Perot redux. Who that 3rd is would determine which party would get cannibalized most.

    I think Pence is a good human, has good morals, and means nobody any harm.

    But he's a terrible politician in my view. Always seems like a deer in headlights, or like that guy TapeFace. Scared to really know what to say because he wants to make sure he's towing the Trump line.

    He also will be associated with the swamp, right or wrong.

    I REALLY like Mike Pence, but there's no way he should be president or even a presidential candidate. He would be thrashed.

    Nah...that’s the DNC playbook. The GOP playbook is don’t fight back. Trump threw that garbage in the trash. He only trashes those who trash him and libs are livid over it. How dare Trump fight on their level against them. Lolol

    A lot of Republican women would vote for ‘ol Nikki. I know my wife would. She hates Trump! Says that he’s a terrible role model for our children.

    Ahh. If only Trump didn’t use the DNC playbook he could count on your wife’s support.

    Most of the people who live near me also believe he's a terrible role model for their children. But they voted for him, because the alternative was It. Also, they weren't voting for him to be their role model or pastor or God parent.

    There are no doubt tons of people who would vote for Trump if he weren't a big fat a-hole. But if he toned down his rhetoric and approached things different, he might also lose a lot of voters who think its that mentality that is needed to break the gears of Washington.

    Not sure what to make of Nikki but what if the Maniac did something a bit unexpected like ditched Pence right at the run up and flagged her to be his VP running mate?
