Mitch Daniels' Wife Won't Let Him Run for President

Probably just as well (from Top of the Ticket):
In a humble 164-word email to supporters early Sunday morning, Indiana's Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels said he would not pursue his party's nomination for 2012.

His decision came as a shock to many mainstream Republicans, who knew of the objections of his wife Cherie to the personal rigors and media scrutinty of a national campaign.

But they thought those concerns had been overcome in recent days of quiet lobbying.

Not so.
Gov. Perry? Gov. Rick Perry? It's 3am and your phone is ringing.

What makes this extra interesting is that for weeks various Obama operatives have been trying to sell America  and the GOP on the idea that Daniels was the candidate they most feared.  Of course, that's nonsense.  It was an effort to get the GOP to nominate another McCain, Mr. "Let's All Get Along" who would get trampled by Obama in the election.  Didn't work.

We know the lap dog media would go all Andy Sullivan on Mrs. Daniels.
