But doesn't the VP have to be the bad guy in this, trying to become President?
Sure, you could have that twist at the end. Ford and Washington duke it out, then Foster comes in at the last minute and helps Ford out. Originally the VP was planning to look like the hero, the President would be incapacitated and forced to resign but Ford got involved and so the VP changes his plans and tries to kill them both.
