Who is the slyest, most Machiavellian major party candidate? Maybe Mike Pence. Especially if he and his running mate are elected.
Because, given his thin skin and politically unfiltered temperament, a President Trump can practically be guaranteed to do something outrageous his first year in office.
And if it’s bad enough, with no friends among the Democrats and not many among the Republicans, we could have ourselves a successful impeachment.
Then voila, President Pence. Pretty slick.
