Mark Schoeff Jr.: Pence could become Trump’s role model

WASHINGTON 
– Vice President-elect Mike Pence was an afterthought to
President-elect Donald Trump during his acceptance speech early
Wednesday morning. After showering supporters, campaign staff
and family members with lengthy encomiums, Trump turned to walk away
from the podium. Then he returned abruptly, looked to Pence and said,
“Thank you, Mike Pence.” The slight was probably
unintentional, even though Pence’s presence on the stage could not be
overlooked. Pence was the person who introduced Trump. That
awkward moment surely does not foreshadow the importance of Pence in a
Trump administration. Pence provided ballast during a stormy campaign
when Trump went off course, and will wind up doing the same when Trump
has to work with Congress. There may not be much of a
honeymoon, despite the fact that Republicans control both houses of
Congress. Trump laid into many Republican lawmakers with alacrity during
the campaign, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc.
