At this point, as bloggers and as members of the press, we need to be honest and accept that Mitch Daniels is not running for President. He isn’t in Iowa, New Hampshire, or South Carolina. But Haley is. However, Mitch would make a perfect running mate for Haley. They agree in nearly every single issue, worked in the Reagan Whit House together (talk about a Republican dream team), and are budget cutting ninjas. Haley has made it clear that he is running. Mitch has made it clear that he isn’t. Haley has also made it clear that he is going to compete hard in the Midwest. Daniels has key contacts there and they appear to have the perfect chemistry to create a Barbour/Daniels ticket. My friends, this is your 2012 ticket. More to follow.
