Neel Kashkari for Governor of California

George Will discusses Kashkari’s appeal, which might well prove to be considerable, given the politics of the state of California. The state would do well to elect a governor who has more than a passing amount of experience with the private sector, of course; hasn’t California had enough of career politicians like Jerry Brown, who have barely (if ever) worked outside of the political/governmental sphere? And to be sure, Will is right to identify Kashkari as representative of a new brand of Republicanism. If there is anything that the past few years have taught us, it is that the GOP desperately needs to change its brand. Kashkari could help the party do just that, and he could provide some much needed enlightened leadership to the Golden State. A win-win situation, if ever I saw one.
