How Trump met Pence

The New York Times offers background on how the Trump/Pence ticket came together.
Pence said he disliked the Clintons and the scandals of the 90s.
With the vice presidency potentially hanging in the balance, Mr. Pence described his personal distaste for Hillary Clinton and her husband, the former president, and spoke of feeling disgusted at what he called the corruption of the 1990s.
The monologue appeared to be a success.
Even Jared Kushner, Mr. Trump’s son-in-law, a trusted adviser who had admired Newt Gingrich, came away swayed, believing that Mr. Pence could gel with the Trump team.
See, it's easy to find common ground.
