Mitch Daniels Would ‘Disconnect The Phone’ To Avoid VP Call

Mitt Romney is currently looking for a running mate for the 2012 election. If he wants to pick Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels, he’ll have to make the request in person.

Daniels said today that he would “disconnect the phone” if he thought that Romney was going to call him and offer him the vice president position.

Daniels said:

“It’s not an office I want to hold, expect to hold, have any plans to hold. We ought to give some time to public service, try to pay back a little rent to this country, but my goal has always been to do the best I could and then go back to private life…. If I thought that call was coming, I would disconnect the phone.”

Daniels is just the latest politician to preemptively turn down the vice presidency. Nikki Haley, Tim Pawlenty, and Condoleeza Rice have all said that they do not want to be considered for the job. Politicians like Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush have also been less than happy when their names were thrown into the mix.

Who do you think Mitt Romney will pick for his vice president? According to Inquisitr writer James Johnson, it will probably be some “boring white guy.”
