Former Vice President Dan Quayle was asked by Neil Cavuto of Fox News Thursday whether he was going to run for president and . . . he didn’t rule it out, offering up the classic “I’m happy where I am” evasion and then mumbling something about he wasn’t thinking about it right now.
Wow. Quayle hasn’t really been on my radar lately.
Have a look at the video. Quayle has aged rather nicely – he looks good and sounds like he knows what he’s talking about, which he didn’t always sound like when he was vice president, even when he did know what he was talking about, which he usually did.
He’s asked whether he might run near the end, at about the 13:50 mark. Notice how quickly after his non-answers he tries to get off the topic.
Quayle 2016? Who knows, stranger things have happened. One of them is sitting in the Oval Office right now.
