We sincerely hope this does not come to pass. For one thing, it is a gross conflict of interest for Trustees that were appointed by Daniels to select him as President. If that weren't bad enough, he has been a leader in waging war against women in Indiana with his attempts to defund Planned Parenthood. Finally, he was part of the Bush budget team that got our economy into the mess it has been in for the past 5 years. As I understand it, he even provided Bush estimates for the cost of the war in Iraq. From our point of view, he is a terribly flawed leader. We will honor our current pledge to as Found Members of the Purdue Policy Institute, but we will not provide any additional financial support to Purdue if Daniels becomes President. For now we will hope that the rumors are wrong. Thank you for all you do for Purdue, Anne and Tom Schowe
