As the 2024 Presidential primary season continues to waste everyone’s time, the question of who should be former President Donald Trump’s running mate arises. And one name is gaining traction – Congresswoman Elise Stefanik. Some skeptics, like Bonchie, have already dismissed her as a potential VP pick. But Jerry Wilson respectfully disagrees, and he’s got some persuasive arguments.
First and foremost, a vice president should be someone who can step up and take charge if the president becomes incapacitated or, heaven forbid, Kamala Harris becomes the Oval Office occupant. We all know that would be a disaster! So, someone with the capacity to lead is crucial. And Elise Stefanik has proven herself as a capable and dedicated public servant. She may not be a die-hard conservative like some, but she’s got the right mix of experience and pragmatism to get the job done.
OPINION: Why Not Elise Stefanik for Vice President? https://t.co/1XYf0bLnG9

Now, historically, vice presidents have been chosen not just for their qualifications but also for what they bring to the ticket. Think John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson – a good-looking war hero from the North paired with a Southern politician. It was an odd pairing, but it worked. In the case of Trump and Stefanik, it’s more like peas in a pod. They’re cut from the same cloth, both unafraid to speak their minds and shake things up. That’s the kind of energy we need.
Sure, Stefanik may not have a perfect voting record when it comes to conservative issues. But hey, Trump himself wasn’t a traditional conservative candidate. So why not match him with a like-minded VP? And let’s not forget that Stefanik has consistently shown her support for Trump, even when they may have disagreed on certain issues. Loyalty matters, and she’s got it in spades.
And here’s another thing – Stefanik is a clean slate. She doesn’t have any scandalous skeletons in her closet that could tarnish her career. With all the media scrutiny she’s faced as a Trump supporter, if there were any dirt to be found, it would’ve been uncovered by now. She’s a tough cookie who knows how to fight back against the media’s attacks. That’s the kind of resiliency we need in a VP.
Lastly, Stefanik’s suburban appeal could be a game-changer. She’s a wife and a mom, and that resonates with a significant demographic. She understands the struggles and aspirations of everyday Americans. That kind of relatability could be a valuable asset in the race for the White House.
In conclusion, Elise Stefanik has a lot to offer as a potential vice president. While Trump hasn’t made any announcements yet, there’s a strong possibility that Stefanik is high on his list. And I, for one, think she’s more than qualified for the job. Let’s not underestimate her potential and support a ticket that can truly make America great again!
