CNN: Shooting guns and talking politics with Scott Walker

Over the past few election cycles, I've interviewed presidential candidates in all kinds of settings, all over the country.

But no matter the candidate, and no matter the questions, they all had one thing in common: walls. A hotel room, a convention center, a studio, a stage. We sit down, we get mic-ed up, the lights go on, the cameras roll, and in 15 minutes it's all over. I'm in full hair and makeup and four-inch heels, because...well, cable news.

That's what makes my new series, "Outside with Insiders" so cool.

For this episode, I went to Waukesha, Wisconsin, just a half hour outside of Milwaukee -- importantly, not to "interview" the state's governor and Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker, but to shoot sporting clays with him. I wore my favorite pair of boots, which have been hunting and fishing with me on four continents. There just happened to be cameras there, and we just happened to talk a little politics.

Spoiler: he's a pretty good shot, and there's one veep suggestion he hears all the time.
