Walker's Presidential Pipe Dream Includes R. Kleefisch Promotion

Milwaukee County voters saw this particular patented Walker Weaseliness a few years ago.

Eyeing a run for Governor, then-County Executive Walker wouldn't commit to finishing a term that, in fact, he cut short when he won the right to move into the Mansion in Maple Bluff.

Now he's doing the same thing again - - not pledging to finish out a 2014-2018 second gubernatorial term should he win this November, since he believes he has a chance of successfully campaigning for the Presidency.

Consider that along with that preposterous, arrogant plan to become The Most Powerful Person On The Planet, an early Walker departure from the governorship would hand the office to Lt. Gov. Rebecca Kleefisch.

Historians will note that the last two Wisconsin Governors who took that route to the Mansion - - Martin Schreiber and Scott McCallum - - both lost bids for a full term.

Voters seem to flinch at electing a Governor holding the office through appointment.

Updated hat tip for editing, TB.

He can follow Sarah Palin's path to Half-Gov and thence to full-time grifting.

His position has no term limits though and he's drunk with power. He has no chance at the republican primary. Like Tom Barrett, he lacks charisma. Rick Perry or Jeb Bush are above his level.
