Governor Romney hasn't picked a running mate yet but it does not appear at this point -- looked -- does not appear that a woman or follow foreign policy expert will get the not.
But KT McFall its name did come up in a Washington times block.
-- -- the writers saying what about KT McFarland for vice president the former Reagan administration official honed her chops at the Pentagon and her knowledge of foreign policy.
Issues that runs deep her current role as a Fox News expert analysts is must see political TV for those who care of our foreign policy.
She very well could make a fine vice president debt.
We think you some you sum up.
-- -- -- -- -- have a a woman two things that are critical.
For a running mate for written Mitt Romney and and that in terms the election.
Female vote foreign policy experience -- Wet markets not realistic but it's very flattering on the laughs.
But I do think that it makes a point now why are people looking outside the box for candidates for president vice president of these things.
Because most people especially women look at Washington say we have huge problems and -- we can't seem to fix any help them.
And when people voted for President Obama in 2008 he was open -- it was going to be different there's going to be above partisan politics.
While turns out it was bait and switch you know his -- conned everyone is not have been in a uniter he's been a divider.
I don't think -- women particularly are looking for someplace to go out electorally and I haven't found it.
Existing I think most of us agree that that heck of a vice president much you really mess it up -- -- necessarily have much of effect of people vote for the top of the ticket but with that said you mentioned the woman.
Part of it whether foreign policy and Joseph Biden you have to remember for years ago and that's why he was picked for better -- that's why he was -- for foreign policy experience in the senate doesn't look like.
Romney who doesn't have a lot of personal foreign policy experience will go that when does that bother you as somebody in the field there.
If it a lot of head of reaches for his cabinet if he's elected.
But I do think foreign policy as much as people are not looking at it as an election issue they're not voting out -- -- -- -- in 2000 made for you know against the Iraq War for the Iraq or.
Foreign policies is going to become a major issue in the next six straight months the Arab Spring all of us Middle East countries -- -- in many of -- chaos.
-- the Sinai Peninsula and Syria today.
We have seen both of those countries surrounding Israel threatened or run the price of -- -- the Strait of Hormuz is they're going to be a crisis there.
So I do think that there are issues which will test standing president.
Instead it seems to -- this focus is here in the states and which.
Potential running -- can bring in both of our articles day my -- -- down in Florida.
-- but here's the thing is -- all going to be about jobs and the economy and it's not going to be the statistics of what's unemployment -- All these things the average person especially women -- to say.
Store I have a job just my husband have a -- my kids have a job.
And which of these two candidates is likely to get a job or create a job for them it's not going to be the mark complicated thing but the jobs -- -- -- at.
If you look at the election 2000 who elected.
President Bush suburban women.
That was the swing vote they were -- they were soccer moms 2004 security amounts 2000 innate.
Obama moms and now their moms what their kids are back from school and their on the couch and are unemployed we looked we wish the best in your candidacy I give her and a diplomat.
