Mitch Daniels and The Rules
Family Matters may be a convenient excuse, but I can't believe that a pot bust in 1970 and a messy divorce that ended with he and his ex-wife remarrying eight years later would keep him away from a Presidential run. In the Republican primary, the topic would be more or less off limits, and Democrats never went there with John McCain's more blatant philandering and maltreatment of his first wife. The Palin family drama did manage to hit the Freak Show, but their drama was more current and ... um ... dramatic.
