Weekly Standard: Haley-Peterson 2012?

Haley-Peterson 2012?

GOP stars rising.

They both have primary opposition (and, for all I know, their opponents are fine and well-qualified candidates), but based on their ads, you’ve got to like Nikki Haley, a South Carolina state legislator running this year for governor, and Dale Peterson, a businessman running for Alabama Ag Commissioner.

And if they win their primaries and the general election, why not skip, Obama-like, over all the established leaders in the party (fine individuals though they too are), and go for Haley-Peterson in 2012?

(Okay, South Carolina-Alabama isn’t the most balanced ticket ever, but aren’t those ideas of geographical balance a relic from a past age? And it would be an exceptionally gender balanced and generationally balanced ticket!)
