Mitch Daniels "pretty sure" he's not being vetted

On Fox News last night, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels continued to dismiss chatter that Mitt Romney might be considering him as his running mate.

BAIER: How do you know that you're not on the shortlist for Governor Romney?

DANIELS: Let's just say that I have strong confidence that the nation will not face that problem.

BAIER: So you're not being vetted?

DANIELS: Well, you wouldn't know if you were, but I'm pretty sure 'no'.

Regardless of whether he's being vetted, Daniels probably hurt himself badly by reaffirming his support for a truce on social issues a bit earlier in the interview.
