Turns out maybe Donald Trump doesn't want to be president after all.
Oh, he wants to run for president. Almost certainly wants to win. Probably wants to be inaugurated.
But doing the actual job? That's something else. At least according to Paul Manafort, Trump's strategist and campaign chairman, in an interview with HuffPost's Howard Fineman:
"The vice presidential pick will also be part of the process of proving he's ready for the White House, Manafort said.
"'He needs an experienced person to do the part of the job he doesn't want to do. He seems himself more as the chairman of the board, than even the CEO, let alone the COO.'"
Not the CEO? As the Atlantic's Yoni Applebaum noted: "The Constitution says, 'The executive Power shall be vested in a President.' CEO is literally the job description."
