As I said over the weekend, this talk is a green banana; it's just too early. I'm convinced Governor Walker is open to the idea of running for President, but I'm also quite sure he's not consumed with the idea. Whether next year's re-election bid is a coast or a dog fight will be a factor.
How many of his reformist goals are unfulfilled when the Presidential campaign season begins? What does the rest of the field look like? Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal will be formidable, to say the least. And Walker and Jindal are essentially the same product; reformist conservative governors. And I do believe a reformer with executive experience will be a better choice than a senator for Republicans in 2016, unless Washington's reputation improves, dramatically, between now and then.
This might be on Walker's radar, but it's a faint blip on the edge of the screen. Only time will tell if it grows closer, brighter and louder.
