Mitch Daniels

Ross Douthat praises Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels.  Good last paragraph: "For a Daniels candidacy to catch fire, what's left of the Republican establishment, currently (if reluctantly) coalescing around Mitt Romney, would have to decide that he's the better pick. That would mean gambling that the best way to defeat the most charismatic president of modern times is to nominate a balding, wonky Midwesterner who reminds voters of their accountant.Stranger things have happened." 

You might want to listen to Gov. Daniels for a few minutes.  He spoke last October to a meeting of the Philadelphia Society.  We have invited him to speak at Ashbrook later this year.

Was not the term 'charismatic' used by Max Weber to refer to figures such as Buddha and Christ, not politicos who can read a TelePrompTer well?
