It's What You Do When No One Is Watching


I’ll admit, I am biased. My college town of Muncie, Indiana is in Rep. Mike Pence’s district and I had the pleasure of meeting with his campaign staff on one occasion last year.

Now that’s out of the way, walking down First Street last night, in the middle of a drizzling rain, I passed the Congressman also walking in the rain with what appeared to be a younger staffer.

Mr. Pence, who Human Events voted the number one up and coming House conservative two weeks ago, was holding an umbrella for his companion leaving his own highly recognizable white head to soak.

I can’t say I was surprised to see such an act of kindness, but it’s certainly pleasant to see such a humble act by such a busy elected official unexpectedly.
