Pawlenty Ponders And Regrets

by Dan Burns on October 12, 2011

Not that it would probably matter, in practical terms, given what a humiliation his first national campaign was.

Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty says it’s “highly unlikely” that he’ll run for the White House again or that he’d accept a high-level post in a Republican administration.

He’s used this excuse before, implying that modern politics has no place for his seriousness and profundity.

Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty said Tuesday that presidential campaigns are encouraged by a political-media-entertainment complex to be “cartoonish.”


But now the former Minnesota governor admits he’s had second thoughts about whether he did the right thing by quitting the race so early.


Pawlenty did not rule out a future campaign. Asked if he might return to politics someday, such as a 2014 U.S. Senate race against incumbent Democrat Al Franken, Pawlenty said he really doesn’t know what the future holds.

A number of factors combined to render the Pawlenty campaign a farcical dud – Timmy’s own phoniness, wussiness, and none-too-brightness, to name a few – and he clearly still has no idea, what really happened.
