Looking more into him I really don't like his political record or his chances of bringing enthusiasm back to a 2012 Republican Ticket. Does anyone else not like him?

I dislike Daniels mainly because he was hyped up here while there was nothing to back up the hype. His ties to George W. Bush are disturbing to begin with.

Right he just strikes me as another boring McCain-like Republican. The Republicans need someone energetic, or at least telegenic, that can take Obama down in the campaign.

Those ties to Bush have been made up for by successfully turning Indiana around and successfully running a business.

Yes, like Ron Paul. I don't think there's any other Republican on the horizon to break the Bush-McCain mold.

Then minus not having the Bush ties, Republicans should be turning to Mitt Romney then.

Except Mitt Romney has a mediocre record as governor. He's quite unpopular in Massachusetts.

John Kerry was able to shake off the Hanoi Jane ties which was worse than a former 2 term president to have ties with. I mean really Bush Jr. is never going to be a factor again in an election unless he decides to run for something.

Well and this guy is Mike Huckabee just face it.

Or at least Sarah Palin could bring entousiasm

Matter of perspective. I don't recall him being hyped. I do recall him getting a lot of discussion. Primarily because he is not Romney/Palin/Huck/Gingrich/Paul that we have been discussing for ever.


And in my opinion, Daniels is the best you will ever get. Tongue

No Republican that has a chance at the nomination is going to seriously turn on national security and if they do, it will be a temporary head fake on one national security issue like Afghanistan. You might get rhetoric similar to that of Bush in 2000, but thats it. Welcome to the new Republican Party. Tongue

Right. Both parties are going to be interventionist for the near future, for better or for worse. Neither party will nominate someone who appears to oppose the War on Terror or international organizations.

eh, I have things I like and don't like about him. But I'm not excited for a 2012 run from him. I'll shrug, I'd vote for him. I'd volunteer if he's the nominee or it came down to him or Romney...but other than that nope

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

I see Mitch as a strong VP candidate.  Guys that look good on paper and can help in Swing states.  Other strong VP contenders are Petreaus, Thune, Hutchinson.  But a smart VP pick will help win Ohio and even Santorum might be able to do that. 

But Mitch doesn't have a large personality.  He's the Republican version of Evan Bayh, boring mid-westerner with a good political resume but no one is excited to vote for him outside of Indiana.  Mitch could win Iowa and grind out a national campaign against Obama, but at this point he's not Bill Clinton and doesn't have GWBush's family name recognition to win voters.  He's not even a War Hero like McCain or Kerry. 

Sadly, Romney could win the nomination by Default because everyone is 2nd tier.  But Romney's barely above 2nd tier himself, with a very small base somewhere in michigan, utah, and NH.

Pretty much this.  It's a better idea for Daniels to be a VP candidate and run later on.  Nevertheless he still has a high chance though.

Mitch also doesn't really want to run for President unlike the other contenders.  If he really wanted it, he could do well, its about having the passion for the national campaign.

I really think that if Romney is the GOP presidential nominee, we will see a 3rd party made up of Christian Tea Party members.  Romney has strength in the 3 states of Michigan, NH, and Nevada, and nowhere else.  He represents Wall Street I-bankers who fleeced the economy.  He has no military record and he's a radical mormon.
