Others are ready to push Walker into the race now.
Aaron Goldstein of the American Spectator wrote in a rah-rah pre-election story, “If Walker wins on November 4, Republicans should nominate him by acclamation, right then and there, to be their 2016 presidential candidate. The GOP needs a fighter who can step into the ring and dish out as much as he can take, not another man with a glass jaw.”
Walker has a more realistic assessment of presidential ambition.
In September, he told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “You really have to be crazy to want to be in for that job. Doesn’t mean people shouldn’t. You better feel you have a calling. Right now, my calling is to be governor of Wisconsin.”
Well, one could argue that Walker was crazy to take on the public sector unions and reform Wisconsin’s collective bargaining system. Obviously, Walker couldn’t very well speak of any presidential ambitions he might have during this race. But people will be asking him to run.
Yes, you do have to be crazy to want to be President of the United States. For the sake of this country, I hope Walker has a little crazy in him.
