(CNN)Vice President Mike Pence is on his way to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. But he's not just going to cut ribbons and watch sports. The fateful question is whether he's going there to improve the chances of a diplomatic solution to the confrontation between the United States and North Korea -- or essentially to give Kim Jong Un the finger.
