Jennifer Rubin: Pence May Be President One Day, Sooner than We Think
RUBIN: "So it is a difficult task to assert one's self in this administration without getting knocked down to size. That said, I think actually the most important thing that Mike Pence could do to prepare for 2020 is to stay as far away from the special prosecutor as well. He shouldn’t comment on it. He shouldn’t attack. He may be president one day. Sooner than we think. And if anything on his, I think, focus should be on steering clear of that. Doing his job. Addressing policy issues. Yes he has to get out and do some politicking. But really the real danger for him is he gets immersed in this and then come, I don’t know, 2018, 2019, 2020, the two of them are then implicated. That would be disastrous for the party and for him personally."
