7. No integrity needed.

In fact, Pence can initiate a Himmler-esque power grab by declining the nomination as VP, forcing the RNC to convene to replace him, and then having his co-conspirators suspend the rules or yank Trump under the "or otherwise" clause of Rule 9.

He'd probably have to fight Paul Ryan for it, with Ryan of course denying that he wants the nomination the whole way.
