Mitch Daniels, Governor, Indiana since 2004
Nothing much happens in Indiana except Indianapolis: it's a middle American state with a lot of middling.
And then there's Mitch Daniels. He still isn't sure about putting his hat in the ring for the Republican nomination; he hates the fund-raising and endless dinners which it inevitably brings.
So what if the fund raising could be done by another group of supporters? Enter George W Bush and the Republican team from Texas keen to help. For sure if Daniels runs he will already have a war chest around £500m.....that's a lot of not-to-have dinners.
My guess is he'll run. We'll know soon enough.
