Mitch Daniels Isn't Running
Okay so I was a bit shocked by this one, as all the buzz seemed to point to him running. I wasn't 100% sure that I would have supported him in the primaries, but he did get a "B" from the Cato Institute in their Fiscal Policy Report Card and he actually does sound like he tries to be libertarian. The only downside I saw was that he was a bit too much in the Dick Lugar camp on foreign policy, which I have never been a fan of. Oh well, looks like Tim Pawlenty is my guy. He got an "A" from Cato and seems to be saying all the right things. The only dig I can make against him is that he doesn't seem comfortable in his own skin, hopefully that changes in time for 2012. I really don't think that Paul Ryan or Chris Christie are running as I think both need more administrative experience under their belt first.
