Daniels says it isn't too late to enter presidential race 

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, without signaling his own intentions, said in Washington on Wednesday that it wasn't too late for a candidate to enter the 2012 president race, and that was a "happy surprise."

Daniels, answering a question after a speech at the American Enterprise Institute on his recently-passed education reforms, joked that "unless you are a political professional or running a bed and breakfast in New Hampshire," that it was "a relief to have a campaign measured in months, not years."

The governor had previously said he would make a decision about running after the Indiana legislative session ended, which is what happened last Friday. So his wonky speech at AEI was highly anticipated, and drew a standing room only crowd and lots of political reporters.
