Handicapping Daniels' chances

It seems a lot more likely now that Gov. Mitch Daniels will throw his hat into the presidential race. What do you think about his chances of becoming the Republican nominee?

Very good. He has a great story to tell about fiscal responsibility, he's balanced enough on social issues to appeal to moderates, and his straight-talk and wonkish style will play well while we're still dealing with a weak economy. [104 votes] (44%)
Not a chance. He's not conservative or pugilistic enough for the far right, hailing from a small Midwestern state will hurt him in the primaries, and he lacks the high-wattage charisma of the likely contenders. [130 votes] (56%)
