    VP candidates who hit the national stage essentially out of nowhere then to burn brightly for about a month, then flame out.

    Bad idea.

    Scott Walker is not hitting the stage out of nowhere though. He just had a very large event go his way. Like I said in the article, he has momentum

    Second only to Governor Christie, Scott Walker is probably the most polarizing figure the right could run as VP (unless Caribou Barbie comes out of hiding). Whether that is a good strategery or not for the general election, is a question I do not have an answer for...

    I think Romeny should continue to hold off on this.

    From a purely "If I was a Romney campaign advisor" standpoint he doesn't need to pick a VP right now, that would just distract from Obama's recent blundering.

    Just like Romney basically ignoring what Obama did with illegall immigrants the other day was the smartest thing he could do for his own campaign.


    Me personally, I don't think he should pick Walker.

    ^^ THIS

    Walker should continue to do the things he's doing to help Wisconsin and forget the national stage for a while... If the state continues to make the progress it has, then he can think about higher offices...

    I think Walker is a bad choice as well, but Romney will have to pick someone further to the right to balance his liberal history.
