The point is not the presence of Mike Pence on the March for Life.
The point is the absence of Donald Trump.
Had he been there, then many regular attendees would have stayed away.
And not a few would have turned up in order to demonstrate against him.
It is clearly Pence who is, at least, the Pro-Life Industrial Complex's man.
As surely as the Blairites, and as surely as the Conservative Remainers (who had thought that they had succeeded), the Republicans are determined to get their party back.
