🤴Which Vice President Would Have Been a Great President?
Typically, a vice president has a role in balancing the President. A good vice-president advises the President and supports his commander-in-chief in every policy the boss formulated.
But, on some occasion, we found a vice-president who seems to overpower the President.
For example, in the US, Dick Cheney, the vice-president of President George W. Bush, was the most powerful vice-president in US history. Before took office as vice-president, Cheney was a congressman, defense secretary, and the White House chief of staff. With his vast experience, Cheney has a significant influence on both the foreign and domestic policies of President George W. Bush.
Similarly, in Indonesia, during the first presidency of Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, his vice-president, Jusuf Kalla seems too overpowered the President. Because of that, the President decided to partner with Jusuf Kalla on his second term.
Do you have another example of a vice-president who would be a great president?
I think the current US vice president Mike Pence would make a good President.
