Mike Pence said his vice-presidential role model would be Dick Cheney. “I frankly hold Dick Cheney in very high regard in his role as vice president,” Pence said when asked in an interview with ABC that aired before the election on who his vice-presidential role model would be. Donald Trump’s running mate and now vice president -elect asserted that he would be “a very active vice president” like Cheney, who served under President George W. Bush.
