Former Sen. Richard Lugar’s funeral in early May was a final reunion of sorts with Mike Pence. They in some ways stood at opposite poles of Indiana politics—urban versus rural, pragmatic versus ideological.
Mike Pence has become an avatar of anti-gay hatred. It is an absurd accusation that people should stop making.
President George H. W. Bush had his own version of privilege theory. His greatest privilege was to serve.
Mike Pence dominated, Tim Kaine interrupted, and a moderator asked better questions. What does it mean?
Take a delightful trip to an alternate reality where two prepared, and seemingly pleasant people are running for president. Their names are Kaine and Pence.
The vice-presidential debate will be even more inconsequential than usual this year.
There are a number of eerie parallels between the health of Hillary Clinton and that of another progressive political figure, President Woodrow Wilson.
With all the talk of Hillary Clinton’s health, voters might consider that the best-case scenario might be for a VP pick to end up in the White House.
Even if Hillary Clinton thinks the election is in the bag, why not take the insurance a more popular pick might have provided? Bill Clinton, that’s why.
Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine is apparently a finalist on Hillary Clinton’s veep shortlist, but his record on human life issues leaves much to be desired.
This novel practice violates the spirit of the separation of powers doctrine of the U.S. Constitution.
Elizabeth Warren, Hillary Clinton’s potential running mate, reportedly plagiarized recipes in her cousin’s cookbook, ‘Pow Wow Chow,’ in an attempt to prove her Native American heritage.
Even as some pundits skewer Mike Pence over a handful of issues, his career reveals him as a principled conservative who has fought for individual liberty and free markets.
Of the potential Democratic running mates for Hillary Clinton, Sen. Cory Booker’s case is one of the most compelling.
Maybe with veep pick, a process creeping toward reality TV will just admit it already.
A veep nod would parachute Pence out of facing the wrath of voters he’s screwed. Good for him. Not so good for Trump or the country.
On the major legislative issues of the day, GOP voters are between Donald Trump and Paul Ryan. A blend of the two men’s views would pretty closely reflect those of the Republican rank-and-file.
Donald Trump’s running mate shouldn’t try to make Trump’s agenda palatable for conservatives. Instead, he ought to spend his time undermining Trump.
No rule binds GOP delegates to vote for whatever pliant stooge Donald Trump anoints to be his running mate.
