His best chance was to have run in 2016 like most Vice Presidents do after two terms. Not sure why he didn’t run then. Hilary may have had something to do with it. At the Time Trump wasn’t even on the horizon.
Now his mind is pretty much shot.

“Now his mind is pretty much shot.”

Definitely on the decline.

She almost certainly gave him a choice between silver or lead and he took the silver. It worked with Bernie.

Very few Vice Presidents have successfully been elected immediately after their President--just Thomas Jefferson, Martin Van Buren, and George H.W. Bush. Jefferson's election was before the system was modified by the 12th amendment. Van Buren and Bush won because of the popularity of the incumbent President. The other Vice Presidents who have become President did so because the President died in office, apart from Richard Nixon.
