Robert Gates hopes effort to draft him for president ‘fails miserably’ – Yahoo! News

If you needed any additional proof that many presidential draft efforts are simply bunk, consider Defense Secretary Robert Gates’ comments about his very own draft campaign:

“He told us that he hoped we failed miserably,” Charles Glover, co-founder of www.draftgates2012.com told The Caucus.

Anyone can launch a “draft effort,” which can consist of simply a website, a board of advisers or any number of unofficial features. Sometimes drafters are just eager supporters; others may be angling to become part of an official campaign.

But such calculations don’t have to take the would-be candidate’s own intentions into account.

For example, backers of Indiana GOP Rep. Mike Pence launched a draft effort on his behalf in mid January. A former congressman and several GOP advisers signed on. But the dream died a mere 10 days later, when Pence ruled out a presidential bid.
