14. The extent of any Vice President's influence is predicated on what the President expects

 

"not as a relatively powerless VEEP who only gets to vote upon a tie..."

The extent of any Vice President's influence is predicated on what the President expects from the position (e.g., Hobart, Wallace, Cheney, Nixon, etc). The office in and of itself is neither neutered nor powerful-- it is what the particular administration want. Essentially, were Warren picked as VP, she would have as much policy input as the Clinton White house allowed her.
