Early 2016 Theorizing
April 23rd, 2015

For whatever it’s worth, my working theory of 2016 is that the closest electoral parallel is 1992. Which would mean Rubio as the nominee and Walker as his VP, since Bill Clinton’s theory in picking Gore was to double-down on his electoral proposition–young, future-oriented, a new Democratic party–rather than trying to “balance” the ticket.

So Rubio-Walker really would be Clinton-Gore. Not that any of those four guys would like the comparison.

(Would this analogy make Jeb Bush the 2016 Mario Cuomo–but the Earth 2 version who decided to get into the race against Clinton?)
