  •  Mark Schauer didn't seem like he was running (0+ / 0-)

    It wasn't just that interview. I am sure if you were at the convention, but he didn't approach it like a person about to be the top of our ticket. While people like John Austin were working the all caucus meetings, Schauer just relaxed. He seemed like a dude enjoying his retirement.

    From what I hear, a lot has changed over the past month. He seems more active now. I am not sure why his mood changed suddenly. I think it fair to ask if did he have a true change of heart or is he being forced to run.

      Unfortunately, I don't live in Michigan anymore (though I very much wish I did), so I'm stuck watching from a distance. So I don't know what Schauer is or isn't doing to position himself as a candidate. Obviously, if he runs, I want his heart to be in it.

      But it's Tim Skubick reporting vague assertions about fire in the belly that's got me riled up. If there's a story, report the story and get whatever quotes you can get, even from anonymous sources. Reporting empty platitudes is just infuriating, and even more so if there's an actual story that could be told.
