Mitch Daniels defers to his wife and family and says he won't run for the Presidency (not that anyone in the GOP base was clamoring for his presence.)
Meanwhile, the charismatic Herman Cain is jumping in!
"...Former pizza CEO and conservative radio host Herman Cain made it official Saturday, joining the small but growing roster of candidates seeking the Republican presidential nomination.
Cain, 65, who lives in suburban Atlanta, made his announcement at Atlanta’s Centennial Park, urging Americans frustrated by the country’s direction to read the Constitution.
“Keep reading,” he said. “Don’t stop at life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.”
He vowed the GOP will retake the U.S. Senate and the presidency, just as it regained control of the House in 2010.
“We will take them back because you and I do not want this nation to become just another mediocre nation,” Cain said. He said the nation needs to refocus on free-market principles.
Cain, a favorite among many tea party activists, boasts a long business resume but has never held elective office."
