    Why isn’t Obama on the list? He has done more damage to the U.S.A. than most of them listed. He should have never been our president. It is not too late.

    Obama has not been impeached because the inner cities would explode with racist violence, despite the fact that they are in worse shape than they were before he took office.

    An interest article that uses the history of impeachment of presidents who followed the party norm to address why Mr. Trump needs to choose a VP who can step in after a successful impeachment. And it all revolves around a dottering Senate who has done to an Administration who has flaunted the Constitution, been rebuked by the Courts, and allowed regulators to run wild. This is why Trump is so popular on both sides of the political spectrum vs the offerings of the Democrat and Republican insiders. He is speaking what is on everyone’s mind.

    Another ridiculous article about Trump. The man hasn’t won the primary and you have him impeached. Just another example that the political establishment is shaking in it’s boots over Trump.

    The analysis is correct, and the three candidates for V.P. Cruz, Paul & Carson are certainly eligible. Of the three, Carson is the best one for the nation! Why? Because unlike the strong willed and openly almost as bombastic as Trump, both Cruz and Paul can’t be a great help to the overbearing nature of our super business negotiator- a man of colossal wins and loses!
    But Dr. Carson is the only one who can counsel in a supportive manner and not threaten Trump. As soon as you threaten him, his instinct is to fight! Dr. Carson can help Trump see the merits of compromise without surrendering principle or position as King of the political process.

    Richard, from the “mouth” of a 78 year old white woman – Ben Carson would be a great Vice President to Donald Trump. He’s soft spoken, kind, and has more brains in the tip of his little finger than Thump has in his great big mouth. HOWEVER, when decisions must be made Ben Carson can and will make them.

    Trump has already said that he would like Jeff Sessions as his VP, a very strong pro American choice.

    This is a ridiculous statement. Hillary Clinton has a higher probability of being impeached, just due to her looming FBI situation. One could write this article with every candidate running for office, perhaps Vegas should just put out the odds?! Please WSJ, stick to the news, and leave the opinion trash pieces to the cable news pundits.

    It’s 8 months before the election – almost a year before his swearing in – and The Wall Street Journal boy Martin Hutchinson is impeaching Mr. Trump already! I wonder if the U.S. chamber of commerce or the architect Karl Rove has been talking to little Marty.

    My final choice would be a Trump-Jindal ticket.

    Gov. Jindal’s laid back cerebral demeanor complements well with Donald Trump’s proclivity for bombast and shoot from the hip modus operandi. He is as much of an outside the establishment as Trump and would not be an attractive insider replacement for an outsider that, according to this article, is conducive to impeachment proceedings.

    Other picks considered and discarded: Gov. Palin, a Trump endorser has the disadvantage of having lost once in a national ticket.

    Gov. Christie, had the disadvantage of being also as bombastic as Trump.

    Martin,
    You must believe a President Trump will hit you right in the “pocketbook”. Good, that’s what we need. Your “opinion” on a Liberal Supreme Court, Trump on trade, and Obama’s Oil Tax are also highly questionable.
    The “People” need to take the Country back from people who think like you. You are the problem, not the solution.

    Hands down: Cruz for VP.
    You would clean Hillary’s Clock.

    Mr. Trump,

    I would have Cruz as V/P, you would have GOP singing the blues, and Hillary running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off.

    Martin
    Interesting article, as your opinion. True, Trump is hated by the elites of Republicans. Trump is not beholden to their power or money. That makes them very nervous. Cruz would be Trump’s best bet. He would be able to help street Trump though the methods of the mess we call Congress to get his ideas implemented. They make a good team together, in my opinion. Trump did not get to where he is today by not listening to good ideas from his team. A lot of the persona of Trump is part of his showmanship. Whether you like it or not.
    But let’s be realistic here, Look what Obama has done to America the last 7 years. And who’s our other choice: a pathological liar and criminal Hilary Clinton or a full fledged, never-held-a-job-til-he-was-40 Commie Bernie. Trump’s looking pretty good now!
    Trump/Cruz 2016!

    Impeachment? If Obama can walk all over the Constitution no one can ever get impeached. Kasich will be Trump’s VP.

    Interesting… but rather far fetched. As I understand the requirement for bringing an impeachment accusation, Trump would only be vulnerable for actions committed while in office, not for past indiscretions.

    He should make Joe Biden his Vice-President. It worked for Obama…

    Jumping the gun a little, aren’t you, Martin? He has to beat Clinton first, and I wouldn’t want to bet either way.

    Hate your article but love the comments. The people have spoken. Give us back our government. You’d rather give the presidency to Hillary than lose your power. A vote for Hillary is a vote for Islamic law. When the founders wrote the laws, they believed that the jobs in government was an obligation not a vocation. Mitt Romney and the rest are working with the devil, not doing Gods work. They’d rather destroy the Republican Party than elect someone they can’t control. Let the elections play out if you are smart. But you are not smart. All empires have fallen from within, and if you try to crush the will of the people you are no different. Vote out all the people in congress and start anew. Let us take back our government.

    I think the perfect running mate would be Condoleezza Rice for Trump. The two of them together would capture the vote from many different angles. In 2004-2007 she was named one of the worlds most influential people. Check out her accolades. She’s the one!

    Very cogent and compelling op/ed. Since the GOP in my opinion must carry Ohio to win in November I wouldn’t necessarily completely discount John Kasich, therefore, as a viable GOP Vice Presidential Standard-Bearer.

    President Trump? Right, except that will never happen. If you look at the Republican candidates for the last few cycles it should be obvious, (but apparently isn’t) that the Republicans haven’t learned a thing.
    As for a vp, the first consideration has to be voter appeal, but since Trump seems to be doing everything he can to lose this election, my money is on Sarah Palin.

    The ideal Vice President for Donald Trump would be Judge Jeanine Pirro. Between the 2 of them they would destroy Clinton, and she speaks truth like no other. She would allow no one to attack her and stand strong protecting our new President Donald Trump.

  25. Len Coffelt says:

    To get things accomplished in the Congress, Kasich has been there and done that. And, that would certainly help Trump take Ohio in the General Election. But, according to your thinking, he is too well liked by the political insiders and would not be a possible blockage to impeachment. I really like Dr. Carson because he would bring some common sense to the congressional thinking process. But, I am not sure how helpful he will be in the General Election for Trump. As for Ted Cruz, he has great positions on defending the constitution, and maybe for helping select conservative Supreme Court Judges (not withstanding his screw up involving the selection of Judge Roberts). But, his working relationship with congress will never be successful at getting things accomplished, and his dirty tricks in the primary election process definitely takes him off my list for any higher office.

    The first thing Donald will have to escape is the entrenched political whores in Washington that would see him six feet under. On the choice of a Vice president I see non other than the Doctor Ben Carson. All the other whores have “sold their souls”.

  28. Lord Acton says:

    Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely by definition. An observation that a person’s sense of morality lessens as his or her power increases.

    We are the little people. Trump is not for the people. The super pack has threatened the wealth of this country by taking away properties status for wealth.

    Why does Trump want to be president so bad?

    No way is Sarah Palin a good choice. Tina Fey knows more politics then Sarah.
