Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels still deciding on presidential campaign

(CNN)-Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels' potential run for the Republican presidential nomination is still up in the air. The governor refused to settle the will-he-or-won't-he question Saturday when he told reporters "you can't announce a decision you haven't made."

When a reporter pointed out that the issues Daniels has handled as chief executive of Indiana are similar to those of someone who may have ambition for higher office, Daniel quipped, "It occurred to me while I was making my breakfast this morning, if I switched from oatmeal to corn flakes, someone would say it's a move to the Iowa Caucus. It's just a weird time."
