I would take pretty much any other presidential pairing the EC wants. Paul Ryan? Fine. I think he's a tool, but at least he's an artful tool rather than our artless, inarticulate, flamboyantly ignorant President-Elect. Despite what conservatives seem to think, there would not be all this soul-searching and gnashing of teeth of the GOP had put forth a reasonable candidate. Hell, I'd take Ted Cruz, and I hate the guy's policies. It is Trump the rest of us hate/oppose. He, himself, is not fit to be our president. That's what reasonable and thinking people, including plenty of conservatives, are scared about.
