Boxing In a President Pence

As things look right now, if Pence scooted into the Oval Office upon the removal of Trump, he would likely preside over a Democratic Congress, preventing him from getting anything extreme done. Then there is his role in the Flynn/Russiagate/Comey/etc. affair which he currently claims innocence on the grounds that he was kept in the dark. There is conflicting information that suggests that Pence was fully aware of the problems presented by appointing Michael Flynn to the top national security position. Either way, there's no flattering look for Pence. If you believe his story, he was ineffective as the head of the Trump Transition for his ignorance of information that was being widely shared. If you don't believe Pence, then he is a liar. It would be a tough question to have to answer again and again. But then, people also voted for the candidates who ran on taking away their health care in 2016. No predictions here.
