Sorry, gossips: Now that Mitch Daniels has opted out of the 2012 presidential race, you won’t have the chance to overdose on details about his unusual marriage. But he’s clearing up some things for you: His wife Cheri did not abandon their kids when she briefly married another man in the mid-’90s, he says; she bought a house nearby and they maintained joint custody. In other news: Newt Gingrich says he’s paid off that mysterious six-figure Tiffany bill.
