Re: Even if both Trump and Pence were impeached

"During the Bill Clinton impeachment hearings it was theorized that Bill Clinton could step down, making Al Gore the new Pres. Gore could then appoint Bill Clinton VP. If approved..."

Although in theory this is possible, I find it hard to imagine. Impeachment requires a senate 2/3 majority. In what world would the senate who just impeached Clinton/Trump by 2/3 majority then vote to reappoint him VP??? In practice there's no way the old VP / new P would propose the old P as new VP
