Aside from Indiana Rep. Mike Pence, who is currently deciding between a presidential run and a gubernatorial bid in his home state, DeMints advisers are having a difficult time envisioning a candidate that he could get behind
That contradicts DeMint's own words.

Qualifiers, always qualifiers. Get some spine. You either is or you ain’t running.....

Demint just said ‘no’ on CNN...today
I know DeMint is viewed as the Second Coming of Christ around here but I've always thought of him as a showboat. He talks a great game and generates headlines by doing things like boycotting CPAC but doesn't accomplish much. Where was Jim DeMint during the Bush spending binge? He was in Congress and the Senate then. This “I have to run if someone else doesn't meet my test” is ego and showboating.
....AND IN OTHER NEWS, MURKOWSKI KEEPS SENATE ASSIGNMENTS.
Thursday January 27 2011
Murkowski Announces Committee Assignments for the 112th Congress
WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, will continue to represent Alaska on the same Senate committees that she served on in the last Congress: Energy and Natural Resources; Appropriations; Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP); and Indian Affairs.
Senate Republican leadership informed caucus members today of their committee assignments for the 112th Congress.
These are four of the most critical committees in the United States Senate, particularly as their responsibilities and areas of jurisdiction affect the State of Alaska, so I was glad to keep my membership on these panels, Murkowski said.
Subcommittee assignments on the Appropriations and HELP committees, and committee and subcommittee ranking member slots, will be determined in the near future. Murkowski is the ranking Republican on the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

DeMint w/ Rice 2012!
DeMint and Pence have removed themselves from the running in the same day. I was hoping at least one of them would jump in. Without them, the GOP has a very weak field.

This country needs someone like DeMint.

(White, black, and red all over--America's affirmative action, metrosexual president.)
Peter Brown, a prominent South Carolina donor and a member of DeMints kitchen cabinet, predicted that DeMint could warm to the idea of a White House bid as the rest of the field takes shape.
Oh, I would so be all over this. I'd love to see DeMint run...and win.
