What Is Holding Up A Mitch Daniels Run

Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels thinks his chances of beating President Obama are “quite good.” But that isn’t what’s holding up his decision. It appears as though his wife doesn’t want the scrutiny. (via Political Wire)

In 1993, Cheri Daniels left her husband with their four daughters and married another man in California. She returned a few years later, reconciled with Daniels, and the two were remarried in 1997. That is, in a nutshell, the story. The national press first picked up on it last year when it was buried at the bottom of an 8,600-word Weekly Standard profile.

But much is unknown. Why did she leave Daniels? Why did she come back? That she would be reluctant to publicly answer such delicate questions in front of the nation seems only natural.

A senior Republican official who worked in the Reagan White House said that “quite understandably, that’s a difficult chapter in your life, and whether you’d want to talk about that, if only for a few times, it’d be something you’d have to talk about.”

Maybe Daniels just needs to say whatever happened was because of how passionately he loves America.
