It was about this time last year that political prognosticators, here and elsewhere, started to busy themselves with speculation that 2012 could prove to be a breakout year for Susana Martinez.
We were headed into an election year, they noted. And not just any election year either. This was the beginning of a presidential election year in which the movers and shakers of Martinez’s Republican Party were bent on defeating the incumbent Democratic president.
At the time a whole gaggle Republicans were still in the running for their party’s presidential nomination and it was anybody’s guess who would ultimately prevail.
But vice presidential nominees don’t run for that job. They are picked by the head of the party’s ticket. And before they are picked, they are “mentioned” by pundits and politicos, for whom speculating about potential vice presidential running mates is a quadrennial ritual.
Thus was it that Susana Martinez, first woman to be elected governor in New Mexico, first Hispanic woman to be elected in any state, enjoyed a flurry of “mentioning” as a prospective Republican vice presidential nominee in the 2012 fall election.
