My brief take on last night’s VP debate
Pence won on style, Kaine won on substance, but overall, Pence was the big winner of the two. The big loser was Texas Senator Ted Cruz, because the debate positioned Pence as the new darling of GOP conservatives and the early front-runner for the 2020 GOP nomination. This is a bigger deal than might be thought of now because if Hillary Clinton wins the presidency this year, as expected, it’s almost a rock-solid certainty she will be a one-term President.
