In this highly readable column in the Boston Globe (courtesy of the always excellent Real Clear Politics), political analyst Todd Domke settles on a Veep scorecard in this order: Pawlenty, Crist, Rice, Huckabee, Powell, Hutchison, Cox…. Seeing as how Rice has pronounced herself “moderately pro-choice,” and that Powell, Huckabee, and Crist are likely not to be chosen because of conservative opposition, and that Hutchison seems determined not to be chosen, that leaves Pawlenty and Cox as the two highest rated (among 20 total listed — do read the whole excellent column!). As a Cox fan, I particularly appreciated this:
The best candidates have already been vetted and have a reputation for integrity.
Example: Chris Cox, chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, former California congressman.
