I Guess Mitch Daniels Really Doesn’t Want The Job
It is considered de rigueur for people who may be on the Vice-Presidential short list to be standoffish in public about the possibility of being on the Presidential ticket, but Mitch Daniels seems to be not only closing the door on the possibility of being the nominee, but slamming it shut and locking it:
Asked today by Fox News if Romney’s team has begun vetting him for the No. 2 job, the governor minced no words.
“If I thought that call was coming, I would disconnect the phone,” Daniels said.
He also said that vice president is “not an office I want to hold, expect to hold, have any plans to hold.”
That’s about as Shermanesque as you can get without burning down Atlanta.
