Barbour Will Not Run for President

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour issued a statement saying, "I will not be a candidate for president next year."

"A candidate for president today is embracing a ten-year commitment to an all-consuming effort, to the virtual exclusion of all else.  His (or her) supporters expect and deserve no less than absolute fire in the belly from their candidate.  I cannot offer that with certainty, and total certainty is required."

The focus now turns to Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, Barbour's good friend, who is also very close to making a decision.
