Hutchison for Veep (?)

Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison was on This Week on a "roundtable" discussion of energy.

She gets it. Making bold commitments to future production will bring down prices now. Production must be part of a broader picture that includes renewables. She made the case, and Rep. Markey looked foolish, hastily retreating to his talking points even after they had been dismissed.

I'm not in love with Hutchison, but McCain could certainly do worse than to name her as the VP candidate.

If the Republicans are going to be the party of energy, Hutchison has passed the qualifying exam to carry McCain through on this issue.
