Will he?........He is!.....I've got it on the best authority that Daniels is...BLAH...BLAH....BLAH!
I feel bad for these guys. It's getting to the point now, where there are no more potential candidates left to halt the inevitable (Romney nomination!).
If Daniels doesn't run, who will carry their torch? I heard a rumor that their ace-in-the whole was to Draft Bush 1. After all, he only served one term.
Which brings me to this article that I read that points out that Daniels might be a Fred Thompson clone.
The article points out that both candidates seemed to lack fire in the belly and had a "Self-Depreciation" thing going:
When a stranger approaches after a speech here, eager to “shake the hand of a future president,” Daniels gamely obliges. Then he mutters under his breath: “Not much chance of that.”This same attitude seemed to resonate from Fred Thompson as well. During a trip to New Hampshire back in 08:
Trying to encourage his studio to hurry up so an interview could start, Carl Cameron of Fox News said into his microphone: “The next president of the United States has a schedule to keep.” Standing beside him, a deadpan Mr Thompson interjected: “And so do I.”
If he didn’t think he (Thompson) would be president then how could he expect the voters to disagree with him?.........
...........If a candidate doesn’t want the job more than almost anything else in life and doesn’t believe to their very core that they should be commander-in-chief then they really have no business running – it becomes an affront to supporters, donors and staff . As Ed Rollins put it in the context of his former boss Mike Huckabee: “I can’t want it more than the candidate does.”
