If this is the way Rep. John Shadegg makes a decision, perhaps he isn’t the right man for the House GOP leadership slot.
Mid-afternoon yesterday, Shadegg supporters were emailing associates around town that their man had decided not to seek the Republican leader position. A few hours later, upon further consultation with advisers and members of the Republican caucus, he indicated that should Reps. Roy Blunt or John Boehner not move closer to wrapping up a win, he will enter the race.
At this point, his “I’m out, but I’m in” approach to political gamesmanship is making him look indecisive and rather small.
