It’s clear Gov. Scott Walker really, really wants to be president. It’s equally clear that he’ll say or do just about anything to further that goal, or in the case of South Carolina flying the Confederate flag above its statehouse, he’ll say or do absolutely nothing to win votes.

The Confederate flag stands for racism, slavery, intimidation, and treason, and the fact that Gov. Walker isn’t willing to take a stand on the issue of that flag flying above South Carolina’s statehouse the day after a racially-motivated terror attack sends a clear message that he’s not capable of leading this country, because being President of the United States means doing the morally right thing, even if it’s politically unpopular – not punting just to win some votes.
