Dick Morris wonders if Scott Walker can handle himself on the national stage.

Interesting commentary.

His predictions are wrong, but he knows politics. I appreciate his insight, but it isn't the be all and end all.

Yes, he know politics which is why he may find he needs to knock off the competition to his choice. Not saying he is wrong, but he definitely has a biased agenda.

I do think Jeb Bush will win the nomination. It is not just Scott Walker who is unprepared, but Jeb Bush is a strong candidate.

He had a whole book, Condi vs Hillary where he got both candidates wrong. He's good at analysis but lousy with predictions.

He knows how to play hardball politics. The only type of person that can beat a Hillary.

Yep. He's a pretty astute pundit if he would stick to a neutral position but he usually has a dog in the fight. I imagine he's pimping for someone that he believes will hire him.

Morris once knew politics, but I think he does not know the politics of the present.

It's interesting that he's going after Walker- Dick Morris is a political mercenary.
He started out as a Republican political strategist, jumped over to the other side to join Bill Clinton, and became Clinton's most trusted advisor until the Secret Service learned he was allowing a prostitute to listen in on a conversation between him and the President.
He was fired, of course, and he's never gotten over it, even though his undoing was all his own. He's passionately hated the Clintons ever since.

Given all that, and from his total failure as a once-again Republican advisor, I think dissing Walker might be his way of trying to worm his way back into the Clinton's good graces again. I doubt it will work.

Hookers and politics simply don't mix. As soon as a hooker is involved and found out, the political career is gone forever. There are dozens of examples of that in both parties.
