thought question: picking the VP -- will 25th capability be a consideration in future selections?

Just a question. Given what has happened this month (and the last four years) ... will there be harsher focus on the VP choices?

Pence perhaps was not capable of seeking a 25th amendment, temperamentally and yes, the groveling. And I am certain that VP Harris will act accordingly should it become time to take away the car keys.

What of the future? Will the VP selection become a hotter issue for party officials than in the past? Or the opposite, where a party prefers someone less likely to execute a 25th action?

1. Definitely something to consider.

Any legislation will be carefully worded.

3. I always thought the VP choice was based on

who might look like a capable replacement if anything happened to the president, or somebody so scary that it would give any would-be assassins second thoughts (e.g. Cheney for Bush II).
