One of the media scams this year is that running with Donald Trump is a career killer. Really ? If you win, you are VP, and if not, and you perform well, you are the de facto favorite for 2020.
Remember Senator Ed Muskie who came out of the HHH loss in '68 greatly enhanced. He lost in '72 for other reasons but the nomination did him well. Same with Bob Dole in '76 who ran and lost with President Ford. He went on to Senate Majority Leader and the '96 nomination for President.
Senator Joni Ernst is being considered and is only two years into her term. There's no downside for her to run and frankly, if patriotism and country mean anything, you have to be willing to get in their and make the ticket work. These bow tie Republicans who preach losing this year are a hoot.
