Pawlenty second guessing dropping from the race

It turned out Tim Pawlenty wasn’t cut out for the presidency. And he wasn’t a fit for Fox News. So, like millions of other Americans, he’s still looking for work, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

“I don’t know what the future holds for me,” he told the Tribune, “but in the meantime I need to and want to work and so I’m looking for some private sector opportunities.”

Pawlenty also expressed some regret about withdrawing from the presidential race after seeing the roller coaster the candidates have had, almost all of them having a turn as the party favorite:

Pawlenty said that had he known what the race would become, he would have saved some cash to carry on. Instead, the campaign spent all it had and more in Iowa. “That’s a decision we made and it was the wrong call,” he said.

Had he known what the race would become? Did he sleep through the GOP primary in 2008? Not that it matters. As Pawlenty said in the article, he ran out of cash and didn’t even know it until he dropped out.
