Vice President of the United States
There are sphinxes in Egypt with more facial mobility than Mike Pence as he waits in the wings for a Trump implosion some people see as inevitable before the end of the presidential term. Pence’s reserved manner is in sharp contrast to Trump’s brash histrionics, and his strong religious conservatism is at the heart of his political record in the House and as governor. So, if he steps into the White House for any reason, including the presumption that he will want to run following the Trump years, the big change will be in style rather than political substance. For the moment, though, Dick Cheney he ain’t.
