This year’s Superbowl was a real spectacle and everybody was really excited about the big game, but also this Superbowl was in a patriotic ambient. Mike Pence was honored guest but there were also many others important politicians and celebrities. Read more in the post below- interesting meeting between Pence and George HW Bush.
A few days before he put his hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the Constitution as vice president, Mike Pence revealed a role model for his actions in the second-highest elective office in the land.
The former Indiana governor told CNN that he has sought guidance from the tenure of George H.W. Bush, who was Ronald Reagan’s vice president before winning the White House in 1988.
So when Bush 41 gave Pence a personal note — and the current vice president got the chance to spend time with the former VP at the Super Bowl in Houston — it held special meaning for the former congressman from the Hoosier State.

Recorded during the weekend’s NFL festivities in Texas, the conversation on Kilmeade & Friends revealed Pence’s thoughts about Bush being on the field for the opening coin toss at NRG Stadium.
Pence referred to the fact that the 92-year-old former president was recently hospitalized — as was his wife, Barbara — but was able to bounce back and make a memorable appearance at the NFL championship game.
Pence told Kilmeade on the Fox News Radio segment:
“It really speaks about the strength of that man. We all know him as a president, he was a vice president, he was served in many different positions within the government, but he started out in uniform. People that know the story of George Herbert Walker Bush know that he was an aviator. He was actually shot down over Chichijima, so people that know his whole history know he is a man of great personal strength, so we’re not at all surprised to see him back out here flipping the coin just a few weeks after being in the hospital.”
And the vice president said that despite the challenges of age and infirmity, Bush 41 gave him a personal note with welcome words of encouragement.
“I just got a very nice, warm personal note from President Bush encouraging me and a good word of encouragement for the president, and we just couldn’t be more grateful for that. But the privilege of our little family being able to spend time with the 41st president at the Super Bowl and with these American heroes is really hard to describe.”
In the CNN interview from Jan. 18, Pence explained why he was especially interested in how George H.W. Bush conducted himself as the No. 2 man in the Reagan White House.
“The reason why I think about Vice President Bush is because then as now, I believe, there was a transformational leader coming to bring real change to Washington, D.C.,” Pence told CNN’s Dana Bash.
“I’ll be thinking about the privilege I have to stand next to another change agent as president,” he said.
During the pre-inauguration CNN interview, Pence said he has looked to Bush’s eight years as vice president particularly because he “came alongside and supported a strong, visionary leader,” adding that was a “great source of inspiration.”
Reagan, of course — unlike Trump — had political experience under his belt when he entered the White House — he served as governor of California for eight years.
It’s expected that Pence, with his impressive political resume — including a dozen years on Capitol Hill — will spend much of his time as vice president helping push through Congress the Trump administration’s legislative agenda.
This is another prove of the importance of Mike Pence. Our Vice President announced many times that he wants to put everything in order starting from the congress. Let us all hope that he is powerful enough to survive the pressure. Superbowl is a successful event, marked in Pence’s note.
