Mitch Daniels: I'm Not Running For President

Well, this has been an interesting Sunday morning for news.

“In the end, I was able to resolve every competing consideration but one, but that, the interests and wishes of my family, is the most important consideration of all,” Daniels said in a statement emailed to supporters early Sunday morning. “If I have disappointed you, I will always be sorry.”

There must be even more to the wife leaving-returning story than we see on the surface (and that's quite a bit already).

We'll you have to respect a guy who puts his family first.

So far this primary season doesn't seem as much about picking a candidate as it does about dodging bullets (Trump, Huckabee, Newt, Mitt).

Tim Pawlenty better start growing on me fast.

Added: Here's the confluence of two stories (Israel and GOP field).

Herman Cain doesn't seem to know much about the Mideast.

“I don’t think Israel has any problem with Palestinians’ returning,” he said.

Um, yes they do. A really big one.

He did say he doesn't think the Palestinians want peace and he'd give them nothing in any negotiations.

Here's the thing...a lot of candidates can say crowd pleasing things but in the end we are trying to find a President. As we see on a daily basis, having a President that gives exciting speeches but is bad on those darn details is a recipe for disaster.
