    Gov. Mitch Daniels says he misses Washington D.C. "like a toothache."

    The former head of the Office of Management and Budget under President George W. Bush now spends his time in Indianapolis as the governor of Indiana.

    Daniels pulled his name out of the presidential race in May, but his name keeps coming up as a possible VP pick for the eventual GOP nominee.

    NBC 5 caught up with Daniels during his recent book trip. He talked about the GOP 2012 campaign, Perry's "Ponzi scheme" comment and even admitted that he regularly talks to several candidates in the Republican field about ideas.
