The latest buzz about in the vice presidential derby is that Eric Cantor, the House Republican chief deputy whip, is being seriously considered. If he isn’t, he should be.
Cantor is the James Brown of politics. He is the hardest-working man in show business (or the politics business, if you will). He is the go-to guy in putting together coalitions and getting votes.
Unlike Washington, D.C., which John Kennedy once said combines Southern efficiency with Northern charm, Cantor has all the Southern graces, but he is brutally efficient in getting the job done.
Cantor understands that raising money is all part of the game, and because of that fact, he is a prodigious fundraiser.
