President Mitch Daniels – Has Such A Nice Ring To It. Sigh.

To welcome Mitch Daniels to his new post as President of Purdue University, students flash mobbed him with the Gangnam Style dance:

 
I am a huge fan of flash mobs, as many of y'all know, so I totally love this. Many of them signed a huge poster for him as well, which you can see in the video and which I've also screengrabbed below.
 

That makes me wanna cry, because I think about what might've been. It's no secret that Daisy and I were prepared to devote MANY MANY MANY hours to a Mitch Daniels presidential campaign, had he decided to run. But he's a good, decent, normal man who doesn't want or need the spotlight, and we understand his decision to go on a different path. It just stings, is all. frown
