Allen West in 2016?

NRO reports that the former Florida congressman isn't ruling out a return to national politics in the near future, including a possible campaign for the White House:

West, who lost his bid for Florida’s 18th congressional district in 2012 after a prolonged post-election battle over voter fraud, said that he will make himself “available to run” for any office he is called to serve in by the American people.

He discussed the Benghazi and IRS scandals with Hannity, focusing on the poor “command climate” that President Obama has created. The controversies are the “natural outcrop” of the president’s shortcomings, West explained, and the country needs the “right type of leadership” to foster accountability in Washington.

“I don’t think we should ever elect someone who wants to be president,” the veteran stated. “We should elect someone who is called to be president.” West, it seems, is open to receiving that call.
