Rich James: Mike Pence’s post-Trump future

MERRILLVILLE
– If the voters reject Donald Trump and Mike Pence on Nov. 8 – and it
appears that they will – is there a political future for either man? I
can’t imagine that there will be for Trump, who has been an
embarrassment for the Republican Party. Of course, that doesn’t
necessarily mean that there will even be a place for Trump in the
Republican Party of the future. Pence is another matter.
There are political commentators across the country who have speculated
that Pence would go after the GOP presidential nomination in 2020. After
all, Pence has looked presidential during this campaign. It doesn’t too
much matter that he hasn’t sounded presidential. If Pence
wanted a future in presidential politics, he should have distanced
himself from Trump. Pence would have done well to reject Trump’s notion
that the election was being stolen from him. Pence should have rejected
the notion that the media had the ability to steal an election, as Trump
claimed. And, Pence should have rejected Trump’s claim that America no
longer is prepared militarily.
