While we’re still in the midst of a fantastic struggle, I see no harm in proposing a Plan B. If we get to a contested convention, then I would like to propose a unity name: Senator Ben Sasse. Youthful, charming, and clever, he’s been popping up here and there repeatedly offering insight from a devotedly conservative position, but with an calm a courtesy unusual in this election cycle.
Yes, he’s young, but he also hasn’t run for the presidency, which I feel makes him appealing in that he hasn’t yet been rejected in the way my favorite, Governor Bobby Jindal, has for 2016.
This is just to test the waters. We’re a long way off from June, but it’s good to have a Plan B.
[Editor’s addendum: Pete’s not the only one thinking this way. A #DraftSasse movement has begun on Twitter.]
