Several hours after endorsing Mitt Romney for president recently, outgoing Indiana governor Mitch Daniels told the Indianapolis Star he disapproved of Romney's "slash-and-burn"-style of campaigning and said the former governor needed to make his campaign more constructive.
"You have to campaign to govern, not just to win," he said.
So many politicians have offered Romney this sort of backhanded endorsement that Yahoo News had them face off in an NCAA-style bracket. Former New York Gov. George Pataki won that tourney with his litany of Romney's shortcomings.
Now Daniels has issued a clear challenge for the crown.
Vote below on whose endorsement is the most tepid, and come back Monday afternoon to find out whether Pataki can repeat as the national tepid-Romney-endorsement champion.
