Mitch Daniels' Hurdle

Politico has an article about former Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, whose impressive resume should make him a top tier candidate for the presidency next year. But, the fact that Daniels is the establishment "heartthrob" as the Politico headline has it, probably is more curse than blessing in this election cycle. The endorsement of the "establishment" is not the kind of endorsement that makes the GOP base swoon, and already the knives are out to bring him down.
