I could easily see TCW Anakin being Vader, he has his short bursts of anger and darkness. Remember were still only in 22 BBY. Anakin has shown glimpes but he isn't really there yet, I fully expect the Anakin we see later in the series will be much more darker. I'm a firm believer that the Anakin in the PT wasn't supposed to be the Anakin we got. He was whiny, a jerk and overall a forgettable character. You can blame it on Hayden or George but nonetheless it didn't work. Anakin was the hero of the Republic, the image, winning battles throughout the galaxies with his clone army close by his side trying to get rid of the Separatist nuisance. Remember Obi-Wan and Anakin were the main heroes of the war, they were the 2 Jedi always on the holonet etc. Having Anakin as this great hero for the Republic and the Jedi makes his fall far more dramatic and sad. He goes from hero to villain pretty much over night. I kind of seeing him go like this.. Whiny brat in AOTC>maturing a little bit during the war>Republic Hero>realizing he wants more power(or something along those lines)>ROTS Anakin Also with ROTS Anakin in the beginning we definitely got that TCW Anakin.
