Pence Wowed Them

By on 2.26.09 | 4:35PM

If there ever were a House member who, Jack Kemp-like, could seriously consider running directly for president with no higher office in between (not that it worked for Kemp), it is Mike Pence of Indiana. His speech today at CPAC was absolutely superb, earning several enthusiastic standing ovations and hitting all the right notes both substantively and tonally. It was a stirring defense of free enterprise, limited government, and life, without ever sounding out of the "mainstream" in terms of tone or language. The man knows how to give a speech, and the man knows how to fight for principles. And he knows the issues and has the requisite experienc to be taken seriously. Again, he was terrific today, as he has been every time I have seen him.
