I think the Constitution provides that when the president is exceedingly great he can also simultaneously be the VP. I predict trump will run as both because he is the best.June 10, 2016 at 9:00 AM #798577spdrunParticipant
Trump and mini-Trump. Ivanka for Veep.
Edit: he’s already joked about it. Or maybe not joked.June 10, 2016 at 9:53 AM #798581moneymakerParticipant
There are a lot of good candidates out there for VP, but the question is who will he ask and who will accept. Will probably be a political outsider, but who knows. I think it will be a 4 year gig.June 10, 2016 at 10:15 AM #798583zkParticipant

I think it’s very likely he picks a very much establishment candidate. Someone with lots of experience. His core supporters won’t really care; they’re too excited about Trump being president. But lots of people on the fence might say, “his vice president Senator McSperience will help him understand how things really work in the U.S. government, and will keep him from going too far off the reservation.”
Just my guess.
But, yeah, getting a guy who’s that much of an insider to risk his political career by accepting, that might be tricky.June 10, 2016 at 10:55 AM #798584FlyerInHiGuest
Not hard at all to find a venal insider.
Bob Corker has been angling for the position. I’m betting Bob Corker. It’s fun to watch how Trump makes the republicans squirm. He summoned Corker to Trump tower and the guy willingly made the trek. The Republican Party is now the party of Trump
Apparently Trump overruled his staffers and ordered surrogates to intensify attacks on judge curiel

It must be calculated. How many people who would actually vote for Trump were turned off by his comments regarding the judge? He can’t win by being PC. He will try to win by drawing in people who usually don’t vote.
There has to be a lot of people who voted American Idol and did not vote for either Obama or Romney. If Trump gets large % of ‘his team’ (and he will) and enough reality TV voters he might pull it off.June 10, 2016 at 7:18 PM #798607AnonymousGuest
Eight years as Trump’s VP?
Now Trump is also going to win in 2020?June 11, 2016 at 8:46 AM #798621svelteParticipant
This just in: Trump selects self as VP.

Does OJ”S conviction for selling stolen property make him ineligible for VP? They would win for sure.
