36. Yes, absolutely...

Keith O. made this point forcefully about a month ago. If I remember, it's Article 28 of the 25th Amendment.

This is definitely quite possible. Trump is a massive loose cannon, for everyone. Yes, he may be useful for the GOP, but he's also a huge liability. Pence is an easy choice for conservative Republicans, and probably a massive mistake for Trump to have made with his VP choice. Pence is an archconservative asshole. But compared to Trump, he's massively more competent. More importantly he's not (at least visably) nuts.

Pence is perfect for the GOP (unfortunately), and with a clearly unstable and unpopular Trump rapidly becoming more unglued daily (if that were possible)... I think this is an absolute no-brainer for the GOP.

To be clear, I detest Pence. But with a wildly unstable Trump at the nuclear codes, I have to reluctantly concede, that in order to win in 2020, we need a planet to win on.

The safety of our planet has to be
paramount, and in that regard I trust Pence far more than Trump (as much as I hate to say it).
