Mike Pence Calls Dick Cheney His Role Model For VP

Republican vice presidential nominee Mike Pence tells ABC's Martha Raddatz that his role model for the job would be Dick Cheney.

Just what we need -- a Dick Cheney wanna' be in the White House. Here's vice presidential nominee Mike Pence explaining to ABC's Martha Raddatz who his role model would be if God forbid Trump gets elected:

MIKE PENCE: I frankly hold Dick Cheney in really high regard in his role as Vice President and as an American-

MARTHA RADDATZ: That's the kind of Vice President you would want to be?

MIKE PENCE: Well I think a very active Vice President. Vice President Cheney had experience in Congress as I do and he was very active in working with members of the House and the Senate.

We all saw this coming from a mile away after Trump said he would put his vice president in charge of domestic and foreign policy, didn't we?
