What Was Pawlenty Thinking?
by

Outgoing Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty told the editorial board of the Deluth News Tribune that knowing what he knows now — that Republicans would take over the state legislature — he regrets not running for reelection. Taken on its own, there’s nothing wrong with the comment. But if he does have presidential ambitions, it’s kind of perplexing as to why he’d come out and say this. Doing so merely reinforces the criticism of Pawlenty that he’s a local politician who isn’t cut out for national politics. Saying you’d wish you had run for governor isn’t exactly the best way to communicate that you have the confidence and drive to be president.
