Iím still pretty sure he wants to run for the Senate and not President, but it does seem to me that Jenn Rubin delivers a fatal blow to Mitch Danielsí run for the Presidency.
The New Yorkerís Hendrik Hertzberg explains that Daniels didnít go to the Tea Partyers or to the National Rifle Association for a testing-the-waters confab. Instead, he went to Manhattan
Surrounded by people across the spectrum, the liberals seemed to like him better than any of the other Republican candidates out there. Well, there you go. But more so, when asked who heíd call at 3 a.m. for foreign policy advice, given the choice between John McCain and Dick Lugar, he went with Lugar.
I donít think I need to remind you that, as Jenn ably notes, Lugar ďhas run interference for President Obama on foreign policy issues such as START.Ē
Oh, and Daniels also received an award from the Arab American Institute, led by James Zogby. The group is not exactly on board with a foreign policy that treats Israel as a friend.
