John Harwood @JohnJHarwood

But, I don't think Pence is going to get the chance to pick a VP. He'll go down right along with Trump.

Paul Ryan is also complicit in the Russia collusion, and he's next in line.

9. The question is, would Rubio accept the job?

Regardless of the endstate of this administration after Trump bails - whether Pence pardons Trump, Pence goes first and Trump gets a new VP not of his choosing forced upon him by the party, or Trump and Pence commit suicide simultaneously in the Rose Garden - we're looking at a Democratic president in 2021. If not sooner - nothing says the GOP couldn't finagle some way to bring Hillary Clinton in as their VP pick so that she has to clean up Trump's mess...you know, like they did in 1993 when they stuck her husband with GHWB and Quayle's disasters, or in 2009 when they dropped Dubya's mess in Obama's lap.

Rubio wants to be a two-term president of the United States. I don't think he'll accept a guaranteed two-year hitch as a caretaker VP.

13. Rubio has no work ethic & is unwilling to put in the hours the job demands. Of course, he'll accept

I don't see that shitstain resigning. He's too arrogant, and he's so completely out of touch with reality.
