Default NY Times Flips its Whig Over Gov. Mitch Daniels (R-Ind.)

NY Times Flips its Whig Over Gov. Mitch Daniels (R-Ind.) - Hit & Run : Reason Magazine
Quote:
Mr. Daniels, who took office in 2005, has reduced the number of state workers by 18 percent and held spending growth below inflation. He has raised the sales tax to help make up for a property tax cut. Largely as a result, Indiana finds itself in better fiscal shape than many other states....
Quote:
Mr. Daniels likes to describe himself as a Whig, after the 19th-century political party whose modernizing agenda attracted Abraham Lincoln and Henry Clay.
I do believe he may be one to watch for 2012.

Daniels looks good from a distance. I would need to see a bit more but there are some interesting people out there that may run.
