Scarborough for POTUS?

by Daniel Foster

Vanity Fair reports, “no joke”, that Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough is planning to test the waters for a 2016 presidential run.

After the presidential inauguration in January, Joe (no fan of Mitt Romney’s—”I’ve been very critical”) plans on publishing a memoir that will serve—no joke—as a vehicle to test the waters for a presidential run in 2016. Take that, Mr. Romney.

I’d be curious how exactly Scarborough would position himself. He’s a born-again moderate, the kind of nominal Republican that liberals find it fashionable to include as “one of the good ones.” But as a member of the House GOP class of 1994, he was a reliable conservative with strong marks from the ACU and ATR. And he made his name as an attorney for his brief representation of Michael Griffin, who was convicted of murdering an abortionist in 1993.
