Alas, No : Scott Walker is terrible.

Scott Walker is Out of Mitt’s Shadow—But Staying In the Spotlight Is A Challenge - Bloomberg Politics:

As one of more than a dozen Republicans with a plausible shot at the nomination, Walker is well aware that he must fill in his national profile. He got an assist from Fred Malek, the former Richard Nixon official and founder of the American Action Forum, who lobbed batting-practice softballs that allowed Walker to talk about his faith, his family, and his limited foreign policy experience.

Right, because what we really need to shake the nation out of its topor and restore it to its former glory is the advice of discredited hacks from the Nixon administration.
