9. Kaine is also Jesuit schooled, so will have been

intensively trained in critical thinking and moral and ethical issues, as well as receiving a very broadly rounded education on many subjects. He also majored in economics in college and is currently on the Senate's armed services, budget, and foreign relations committees.

Pence attended law school, was a congressman and is Gov of IN. Interestingly, most lawyers score surprisingly low on tests of understanding of moral issues because of the intensively amoral training that is part of both law school and practice. Pence was part of an intensely devout Catholic family until college, when he became born again and joined a church that didn't require any formal divinity training of its spiritual leaders, a lack of knowledge typically reflected big time in evangelical congregants.

And of course Pence revealed his exceptional...something by joining the so-called Tea Party that was actually an astroturf movement formed by agents operating secretly for the Kochs to serve their interests. Fooled like all the rest or a Koch infiltrator? Or, perhaps likely, something of both?

Pence's lack of intellect has been remarked on publicly a few times. Plus, people with his religious and political views seem to require intensive and constant restructuring of reality to justify themselves. Simply saying "this is what I believe" isn't enough for by far most, who lie constantly about conflicting information and do believe their lies. An entire adulthood of this is not exactly good training for going up against a Jesuit education and an adulthood spent advancing knowledge and understanding.

I think it'll be very surprising if Kaine doesn't come off very well.
