Absolutely... But VP is a fairly ceremonial role. It's a waste to put somebody as good as DeSantis there.

For now, he's far more effective as executive of the third or fourth largest state in the country.

Yeah, that's true. DeSantis is ready for the top job right now. I think Trump will campaign hard for him if he decides not to run again.

It’s usually fairly ceremonial, but it can still be a very important position at times. For example, if we had DeSantis as VP on Jan 6 instead of Pence, he could have refused to certify the election, forcing a crisis.

VP usually does foreign policy mostly. Seems like a perfect role for Pompeo

Pompeo or Grenell would be perfectly suited for VP.

The VP has some procedural functions, such as tiebreaker in the Senate. As far as enumerated powers to lead/govern the country, there aren’t really any. Most of the time, VP leads a few “task forces,” meets with some heads of state, etc.

Grand scheme of things, they’re a often a backup/Presidential candidate in the waiting. See: Bidet (selected into office), Gore (2000 nominee), HW Bush (elected). Of course that’s not an absolute rule (see: Hillary 2016, Cheney not running in ‘08).

He has far more power to actually enact and see through MAGA as Governor of Florida than as Vice President.
