It would be a good thing for Indiana, and a great move for Pence, BUT I sure hate to lose him in the House!!

Praise God! This is the smartest, shrewdest move Mike Pence can make. Instead of letting himself be used as a stop Palin stooge, he is preparing himself by running for governor — a statewide executive office. After serving as governor, he will be the best candidate for president conservatives can have because the elites and RINOs won’t be able to use his lack of executive experience and lack of statewide office against him.

IIRC, he is the father of three, with the eldest a student at Purdue.

I don’t know the ages of his children, but I think his wife and children maintain their residence in Indiana, so presumably he’s aiming to run for governor.

Interesting. My gut feeling on this one is that Pence still has Presidential ambitions. As governor, he’ll add executive branch experience to his lengthy resume from his time in the House.

Perhaps Mr.Pence will not have a succesfull experience as Governor of Indiana. IMHO, Mr.Daniels, with all his professional skills, will be a tough act to follow.

As a new Governor, being the number one guy, constantly criticised by the upstate gang in South Bend plus the uncertain future that Obama has set in motion, may expose weaknesses of Mr.Pence. No hiding out in Congress as just one of many.

Is Bayh a possible player for the Indiana Governors office?

I’m not sure about the Governor thing. It might be true, and would be a prudent career move for him if he does have designs on the presidency. But the Lincoln Day event is sort of interesting because Lincoln only ever held a House seat before becoming POTUS. Of course it could just be wishful thinking because I really like his politics.
