Scott Walker: The Candidate who Can Reunite the GOP

At The New Republic,  Nate Cohn makes the case that of all GOP potential candidates for the presidency in 2016, only Scott Walker has the ability to unite all the factions in the current conservative movement:

There’s another potentially unifying mainline conservative, though, and he lurks in Madison. Scott Walker, the battle-hardened governor of Wisconsin, is the candidate that the factional candidates should fear. Not only does he seem poised to run—he released a book last week—but he possesses the tools and positions necessary to unite the traditional Republican coalition and marginalize its discontents.

Walker has the irreproachable conservative credentials necessary to appease the Tea Party, and he speaks the language of the religious right. But he has the tone, temperament, and record of a capable and responsible establishment figure. That, combined with Walker’s record as a reformist union-buster, will appeal to the party’s donor base and appease the influential business wing. Walker’s experience as an effective but conservative blue state governor makes him a credible presidential candidate, not just a vessel for the conservative message.

Remember, you read a similar assessment of Walker’s potential here last week! PJ Media gets you the news earlier and keeps you abreast of what’s important.
