Hoosier Guv passes on 2012 run.

Daniels: “On matters affecting us all, our family constitution gives a veto to the women’s caucus, and there is no override provision. Simply put, I find myself caught between two duties. I love my country; I love my family more.”

Daniels Statement:

“I hope this reaches you before the public news does.  If so, please respect my confidence for the short time until I can make it known to all.
The counsel and encouragement I received from important citizens like you caused me to think very deeply about becoming a national candidate.  In the end, I was able to resolve every competing consideration but one, but that, the interests and wishes of my family, is the most important consideration of all.  If I have disappointed you, I will always be sorry.  If you feel that this was a non-courageous or unpatriotic decision, I understand and will not attempt to persuade you otherwise.  I only hope that you will accept my sincerity in the judgment I reached.
Many thanks for your help and input during this period of reflection.  Please stay in touch if you see ways in which an obscure Midwestern governor might make a constructive contribution to the rebuilding of our economy and our Republic.”
