I totally agree. Pence is in many ways scarier because he is an astute and practiced politician. I wish we were more like European countries — if the head bastard gets thrown out, his flunkies go, too. Eliminating Trump does not free us from those he personally chose to govern with him because they are like him. Pence is salivating at the thought of Trump being impeached or quitting. In fact, I believe he accepted the Vice Presidency because he believed he would eventually become President without having to be elected. He is using Trump.
The one advantage to Pence, I believe, is he is less likely to get us in a war. He has more self-control and will listen to advisors rather than going rogue like Trump continually does. On the domestic front though, he would be a disaster. He is a self-righteous, religious bigot.
