In a short media session as the hall was emptying, the governor was asked if the real intent of his recently announced HIP2 plan — a conservative alternative to the federal Affordable Care Act — really was designed to convey a conservative message meant to resonate in a presidential run.

Conservatives, provided they agree with his positive-and-getting-better assessment of the state of the Hoosier State, could easily be persuaded that what’s right for Indiana is what’s right for America.
