I'm sorry, but I refuse to look at Mike Pence as a soiled and sullied reject from the Trump Machine -- as if he has no soul of his own and no purpose in life but to clean up Donald Trump's Messes.

He is a person in his own right, and he is not unintelligent. He has values, and worth -- but he may need some time away from Trump (the "Destroyer of Worlds and Reputations") to make his own way -- if he wants to become a "leader of men". Mike Pence might be a great manager (who knows)... but he has to get out of the putrid aura of Donald Trump for a time to begin to make his own way in the world.

I refuse to throw rotten eggs at him just because he demonstrated integrity and loyalty to Donald Trump. A year ago, there were 100s (1000s) of us who were cheering Trump, worshiping Trump, kissing Trump's Rump -- and Mike Pence was doing his job as Trump's Second. He had integrity -- if he had stabbed Donald Trump in the back, then or now, that would be despicable and unacceptable.

I hope he won't lose courage in the coming year. He has a tough road ahead of him.
