Carly on Hugh Hewitt

Carly Fiorina was interviewed by Hugh Hewitt today. The last question was on the comparison between Fiorina and Sarah Palin and Dan Quayle who had problems as VP candidate. Hewitt asked if any interviewer had tried to trip her up or if they ceded the ground to her realizing Carly knows her stuff.

Sixteen minutes worth listening to. LINK

It's a stretch that Cruz can win the Republican nomination. An even bigger stretch that Republicans can win the White House given the acrimony of the campaign and especially the vileness and rudeness of Donald Trump toward every opponent that makes it almost impossible for his supporters to go with anyone else.

But, if Cruz and Fiorina were elected, it would be the first time in my political life that a Vice President would be up to the quality of the President and with a similar vision. Nixon was utterly different than Eisenhower; no nexus between Johnson and Kennedy, and Bush was a moderate conservative to Reagan's deep, principled conservatism. Cruz and Fiorina are very evenly matched in terms of core beliefs and leadership brilliance.

A sixteen year run for a presidential team with similar principles may never be, but it is fun to contemplate.

It's called entertainment. Max. A variant on popcorn and easy chair.

I should also add that it makes it a lot easier for family and friends to live with me during dark election days. The old poly sci major in me comes roaring out. Heh.
