If not Kilgore, maybe Wampler?

Muckraking commentator Jeff Schapiro tries to make a column out of the question Kilgore aside, who could be GOP nominee?, and the best name he can come up with is William Wampler from Bristol:

"He's Southwest Virginia-born, the yuppie son of a legendary congressman, a nephew of a famous U.S. senator, an outdoorsman who can simultaneously read a newspaper and bag a spring gobbler, a Reserve officer in the Army, an expert on health care, somewhat right on abortion and a Senate Labor and Commerce Committee chairman who has helped convert Bristol to an e-enclave.

One more thing: He sounds like Kilgore, only an octave lower - political and actual."
