He was voted as the top presidential pick by the values voters for 2012. He certainly looks the part, but more important, he seems to really understand our system of government and appreciates the constitution. This speech at Hillsdale College is excellent. Whoever runs in 2012, they’re going to have an easy act to follow. But we don’t want any more hacks and ideologues.
My problem with Mike Pence is he is a social conservative, as well as a fiscal conservative and wanted social stuff in the GOP’s Pledge to America. As a quasi-libertarian, I don’t believe social issues are any of the government’s business. But I can live with these differences if he is as pro-constitution and limited government as he seems to be.
