In politician-speak, this language could not scream “I’m running!” more than this:
“This is nothing I have started, encouraged,” said Daniels, a Republican in his second term. “People have asked, ‘Please don’t absolutely close your mind’ and I have said I’ll think about it.”
“It’s nothing I’m going to do anything about,” Daniels said. “If it’s still an interesting subject in a few months, ask me then.”
However, Daniels said that he remains worried “about the condition and direction of the country and I’m a lot more worried even than I was a year and a half ago.”
He said Republicans need to offer voters a clear alternative and a positive agenda in this fall’s campaigns and the 2012 race.
Good, good news.
