The Future of the GOP?
The governor of Indiana is 'a likeable wonk', says The Economist. This is one reason he might run for President. The other is that the GOP's current prospective candidates are 'nauseating'. But governor Mitch Daniels is busy running his state at the moment: "Indiana itself is in trouble. In June the unemployment rate was 10.1%, above the national average. At the county fair, near a display of homemade dresses and wrapped presents (apparently a category at fairs these days), a woman fretted to me about cuts to state schools. Revenues continue to drop. Next year Mr Daniels will have to make more painful cuts."
