(Newser) – The downside of being a presumptive presidential candidate: You get whacked in the head by a door, and it makes the national wires. Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels needed 16 stitches today after a door mishap, reports the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette. Seems he had just finished a workout at the gym and was standing near a door when it swung open and smacked him on the forehead. He was treated and released from an Indianapolis hospital.
