    I believe you when you say that that is the "emerging CW from his fan base."

    But his fan base is nuts. The voter demographics in both parties say that DeMint can't be elected president in 2016, not even if he names Salma Hayek as his running mate.

    I do think that one of the reason DeMint removed himself from government was to avoid the stigma of being involved in a conservative cave to Obama on "big government/the budget." Maybe he wants to duck that because he's thinking about a run for governor or something, down the line.

      There was some push about him running for President in 2012, so I'm not at all sure he's thinking "governor" down the line. Recent diary covers some of the buzz:
