The Senate might have something to say about that.

Which is kind of the issue. Maybe I have the greatest ideas in the world (I don't) but it's President, not Dictator. Getting your agenda enacted is the definition of success in a President. And -

I don't think people generally refer to Jerry Ford as an awesome President.

If Pence is the next POTUS, the Democrats will go after him just as hard as they did Trump, and for the same reasons. If Biden or Warren or Pelosi is the next POTUS, the Republicans will go after them just as hard as the Democrats did against Trump, and for the same reasons.

I could never be President, for a wide variety of reasons. I don't want to be President, for those reasons and a lot more.
