Trump should have run for Vice President

Sara and I were just discussing the US election (which she's been following avidly), and she wondered if Trump could run for Vice President in 2024. Of course he could, I answered – but it also made me realize that that would have been the right job for him all along. After all, the Vice President has nothing to do but things that Trump likes to do: give press conferences, make statements, be part of public ceremonies with international dignitaries, and occasionally be in a position to be the one who makes decisions (when the Senate has a tie vote). And that leaves plenty of time for golf, tweeting, and watching television. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 6 November)
