Josh Marshall notes about Mitch Daniels:

Unlike almost every other Republican in the country this November, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels appears on track for a resounding victory against his Democratic challenger next week. But even with a towering lead in the polls, he's almost comically unwilling to be seen with Gov. Palin.

He cites this Indianapolis Star post, which notes that Daniels will show up at tonight's Palin rally -- her third in the state -- to shake hands in the crowd, but claims a schedule conflict when it comes to actually appearing on stage.

"I'm going by (the Palin rally.) I've got another event scheduled at the same time, but it is close by, so I'm going to go by and spend as long as I can there and hang out in the parking lot and spend some time with the folks standing in line or patiently waiting to get in," Daniels said. "I'm not speaking at the rally, no."
