Pawlenty May Not Finish Second Term

Via MRW, we see that our good Gov. Tim Pawlenty won't commit to finishing a second term, if (and it is a big if) he gets re-elected. Gov. Pawlenty's ambitions for higher office are well-known, most likely the Vice-Presidency (with John McCain?) if not the top spot itself, and 2008 would be prime time for him.

Plain and simple, if Tim Pawlenty is running for another office at the same time he's trying to govern Minnesota, his performance in one of those jobs will suffer. I'm not willing to let the opportunity arise for Gov. Pawlenty to choose which role is more important to him.

If Gov. Pawlenty isn't going to put Minnesota first, I don't see why Minnesota should put him in our highest office. We deserve better than a Governor who's already looking ahead to his next job.
