The following story came out of Indianapolis today:
The Indianapolis Star is only speculating at this point; but, it makes sense The rumored choice is quite likely. Governor Daniels must end his career as Governor of Indiana this term. He is not ruining for president or vice-president. There has been no announcements of any choice yet and normally if it was not someone political it would have been done. The Board of Trustees of Purdue University is to vote this Friday on its slection.
Mitch Daniels as Purdue's President would be a great choice. He has accomplishments and capabilities that the last President, Cordova, did not. Actually, outside of being the first women, no one is clear why she was chosen; or what was the expectation upon her selection.
Finally, Purdue will have a President that will take seriously the Constitutional requirements of ruining a major American university. He also understands the State well and its requirements for higher education, which sadly neither the Board of Trustees nor the Commission of Higher Education has determined as of yet.
