That's Jim DeMint when asked by the American Spectator if he'll run for President in 2012 (also notable that he says "we might be looking for some gray hair" in a candidate).
TAS: Are you going to be in that mix [of candidates]?
JD: I don't think so. I hope I can be part of helping to find somebody who can really change things. It's going to be hard because we need someone who will tell Americans the truth.
.... I think people will be looking outside of Washington. There are some bright House members like Mike Pence and others who have come up with good proposals.
But I think there will be a lot of attention on governors who've been able to manage things.
Young might not be good next time. We might be looking for some gray hair. We need to pull our party back to the main-stream, where America is, because our party has drifted way to the left.
DeMint was also careful not to criticize John Cornyn for jumping (or jump-starting) the Charlie Crist bandwagon last year.
"I want to be clear. I'm not really critical of John Cornyn of the Senate committee. When he was recruiting at this time last year no one wanted to run as a Republican."
DeMint got a few headlines over the weekend for an interview with the St. Pete Times, in which he also talked about 2012 stuff.
