Well, I guess Trump isn’t the political genius Maggie Haberman keeps cooing about because if we’re not hearing any chatter about Ivanka replacing Pence as his second term Veep by this point, I guess it’s not going to happen.
I say this because, lulz, Trump can’t keep a secret. If he was even thinking about doing something as logical as using Ivanka to court the sweet, sweet votes of women in the exerbs of swing states, it would have happened by now. The reason why Ivanka is better than Nikki Haley is, duh, she’s a Trump. Haley has sold her soul in hopes of either replacing Pence or being Trump’s direct successor.
But if Trump DID decide to replace Pence, I just don’t see Haley being it.
Ivanka is, at least, a “threefer.”
She’s a woman.
She’s a Trump
(And she’s considered more moderate than her father.)
What better way to throw everything up in the air than to name the only moderate that the base will accept — Ivanka Trump?
But unless Trump simply randomly decides to do as I suggest because he’s nuts, it doesn’t look like Pence has anything to worry about.
