Pawlenty Regrets Not Running for Re-Election

Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R) told the Duluth News Tribune that he wished he had run for another term now that he knows Republicans will control the legislature.

Said Pawlenty: "Yes, if I would have known then what I know now, given what I've been through and hoped to accomplish, but that (the DFL-controlled Legislature) blocked. But you can't predict the future. And of course, I made my decision after the 2008 election when President Obama and the Democrats swept everything... Hindsight is 20/20."

It doesn't sound like someone with serious presidential aspirations.
