Is Donald Trump Considering Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer for VP?

The former governor of Arizona said she would consider being his running mate if asked.

Donald Trump hinted during an interview on Fox News Wednesday night that former Arizona Governor Jan Brewer may be on his short list for vice president. When asked by Greta Van Susteren, host of On the Record, whether he was considering Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin, whom Brewer had recommended, he responded and implied he was also considering Brewer.
“Well also Jan. Jan Brewer has been fantastic,” Trump said. “She has been so fantastic. You know I won so big, her territory, and we won so big. And she is a fabulous woman. And I agree with you, the governor of Oklahoma — fabulous person.”

At first thought, this might seem a feather in the hat for Arizona. On second thought, why the heck would Donald Trump pick a less than brilliant second-rate ex-governor from a small western state? And what kind of an impression would she make on the rest of the world for us?
Bottom line: A bad idea. Worse than Joe Biden. The best thing Trump could do is immediately discount any professional politician, consultant or lobbyist. They are what's wrong with Washington. The place needs to be thoroughly cleaned out and fumigated, starting from the top.
First qualification: Have a basic knowledge of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Second: Know how the Federal government is supposed to work, not how it currently looks. Third: Know something about U.S. History, how we got here, and what makes us exceptional. Fourth: A limit to the number of lawyers. I'm thinking 3 or 4.
I can dream, can't I?
