My prediction
the world's greatest narcissist will pick for VP for '20:

His son Donald Trump Jr.

I hate political dynasties. Having said that, I really like Don Jr.

Fair enough or maybe Jared if Trump trusts him more, and I agree he is tempted to shape that right now - but he will stay with Pence in 2020 unless there is something not right between them that we don't know.  From what I can see, Pence has done everything asked of him beyond what could have been hoped when he was chosen.

At conservative site Instapundit they preface every piece of good polling news with "Don't get cocky".  Trump has a chance I think to win 5-10 points higher than his general public approval numbers which would be a very decisive victory.  He also has every opportunity to blow this at every turn between now and November.  Don't screw with what is right and working.  Don't create new and unnecessary distractions. 

Except for activist LGBTQ hatred of Pence's Christianity, Pence is non-controversial, highly competent, fully experienced, consistently conservative, loyal to a fault, loaded with integrity and ready to step up and serve on a moment's notice.  Also he is fully vetted.  Not a decision you second guess with new, added risk. 

The job at hand is to win THIS election.  Don Jr doesn't need a new high title to carry campaign star power with him everywhere he goes.  His role is more mystic without a new title.  He can run in 2024 still as an outsider, tied to this administration, without VP status.

Nikki Haley is working hard right now for 2024.  She is well positioned.

I agree. From what I know, at this point she is my favorite.

Much to like there, but keep in mind she is something of a neocon Bushie.

We need someone who will burn the deep state down.

The status quo is unacceptable.

Walter Russell Mead calls the Trump method Jacksonian.  Teddy R: carry a big stick.  For Reagan, it was peace through strength.  No missiles fired bringing down the USSR.  The Trump method is Bellicose Isolationism.  Nikki Haley was part of that.  She stood strong at key moments and  hasn't wavered since.

It was weasels like Powell who said if you break, you have to fix it, meaning nation building after the air war and losing 3000+ Americans.

Before 2024 we can hear more about her economic policy but as I understand it, it is somewhere near mine.

By 2024, the Republican establishment is a generation out of power.

Maybe her bumper sticker will be, speak softly but purge the deep state of all its power and position.  There is some wishful thinking needed to like a candidate before you see them govern.

P.S.  I like Pence too.  Rubio has changed.  I see Cruz as unelectable.

To be fair, it might be, how has my perception of him changed?

1. In that exchange you mentioned with Chris Christie, he choked. Before that he was the best debater in the field.

2. He threatened to hold up the entire tax reform bill for the provision he wanted. The provision he wanted in my opinion violated a principle he had previously articulated.

3. I don't know what to think about his new hyphenated capitalism movement. To me. Freedom doesn't need to be hyphenated.
