Mitch Daniels is generally a good conservative and would be a large improvement from our recent nominees. However, I think that someone like Mike Pence is more of a fighter for conservative causes and will not acquiesce to bi-partisan solutions for the purpose of solvency.

Daniels is not the worst choice, nor is he the best choice.

I would have no problem supporting him were he to win the nomination.

Daniels fights fiercely for economic health.

That's the kind of fighter I could live with.

Pence said he would announce this week, what his intentions for the future are. I'm anxious to hear what it is.

some things to ponder about Mitch before dismissing him.... from Wikipedia.....

On his first day in office, Daniels created Indiana's first Office of Management and Budget to look for inefficiencies and cost savings throughout State government. In 2005, he led Indiana to its first balanced budget in eight years and turned the $600 million deficit he inherited into a $300 million surplus in a single year. He used this surplus to repay hundreds of millions of dollars the State had borrowed from Indiana's public schools in previous administrations.[5] Also on his first day in office, he decertified all government employee unions, removing the requirement that State employees be union members; and, within eight months, 92% of government union members quit their union.[22]

Pence lead the fight against TARP and the proceeding bailouts... he stood firm against Bush on TARP...
What would Mitch have done on that matter?
