Ryan Will Not Run for President; Decision is "Final"

Breaking.

I put the long Ziegler/Romney/Perry/Palin post into draft, as this is a breaking story, so it should go up now. But I will re-publish the other one soon.

This is good/bad.

Although Ryan was expected to be the candidate of Establishment Intellectuals, many people so accused of being such actually were down on him, due to the political courage -- and equal political danger -- of the Ryan plan.

While I would normally be counted as part of Ryan's natural constituency, I couldn't get a lot of passion for the candidacy, now. Partly that's because I've already sold myself on Perry, of course.
