What do you think of Walker and Haley for president and VP

http://wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Walker_(politician)

http://wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikki_Haley

"Her platform was anti-tax and fiscally conservative with an emphasis on education."

I think this could be a winning combination.

As long as they aren't Democrats, I support whoever can win.

Her platform "was". She already seems to be an also-ran. Not that I wouldn't vote for her, though. And it might help to offset the sexism charges that HilHag will no doubt be employing.

I like Walker as a candidate. He pretty well bi**h-slapped the unions and defied the recalls. He's a fighter - and a winner. Seems to know his business and WI also seems in better shape because of his efforts. Looks promising. I just hope some horrid story from his past (immigration-related or something similar) doesn't pop up to shoot him down. Although WI does have a big Somali community which I hear about constantly from a friend who lives in the state. I don't now if that's good or bad re: Walker....

A woman (a GOOD one, and not just because she's a woman) on his ticket couldn't hurt.

As a practical matter, I don't think having two governors on the ticket is a good idea. To me, the ideal running mate would be a Wasington insider - a senator.

Who do you think would be a better team?

I don't much care about her gender and race but the Democrats would make themselves look like idiots attacking her. Of course that has never stopped them before.

She's hot.

Walker/Cruz or Walker/Rubio.

All I hear about strategy is the most conservative with a chance to win. That would be the latter ticket. Cruz is good, but too polarizing.
