Still, Daniels has fought some odd battles before. He began his administration by nanny-stating us all about being fat. Then there was the whole time zone fracas, which I'm not sure I can even explain to a non-Hoosier. He picked those fights because he could see a direct cost benefit to Indiana from Hoosiers losing weight and changing times. So I presume he's become a convert to Right to Work because he's crunched the numbers and thinks it'll make a big enough difference to be worth taking lumps over it.
I can respect that argument, even as I scratch my head over it. It may not follow the conventional political wisdom, but that's our Governor.
