I predict he becomes the next Chris Christie:
In a speech short on policy and heavy on restraint, Gov. Scott Walker addressed Great Britain’s most prominent think tank Wednesday, avoiding difficult foreign affairs questions while emphasizing the “special relationship” between the world’s largest Anglophone countries.
The Republican governor sought in his speech to bolster his scant foreign policy credentials ahead of his likely presidential run even as he largely declined to tackle the toughest questions on international affairs and a variety of other subjects. In his last response, Walker declined to answer a question and follow-up from his interviewer about whether evolution was real, saying politicians were better off steering clear of that issue.
“I’m going to punt on that one as well,” Walker said. “I’m here to talk about trade, not to pontificate about other things.”
After Walker declined to state his views on evolution, the event’s moderator, Justin Webb of BBC Radio 4, told him that he believed any British politician would answer such a question by making clear that he or she believed evolution was true. Walker’s campaign spokeswoman had no immediate comment.
