Haha, the dislike for this guy is really overstated.

By the way, for all the geniuses that make the jokes about him swinging PA, I've never argued that Santorum would even help him here, let alone be the deciding factor in McCain's favor.

What does Santorum add to the ticket?

He's a loony far-right conservative who got booted out by his home state, as an incumbent, by double digits.

Were you also a fierce advocate of Daschle being Obama's VP?

He'd totally satisfy any wary conservatives. He's young. He's a tough, talented debater.

Well, his ideology is also misunderstood. He got booted in a bad year by a man with a legendary name. I don't doubt that he was personally unpopular that year regardless of national politics and whoever was running against him. Is he as unpopular as people think? No, I don't believe so.

Quote

No because Daschle added hardly anything to the ticket.

Really?Huh? The only democratic voters Mccain has a chance with are older women and they are pro-abortion rights. Also Mccain has a chance to do relatively well with gays but yeah with Santorum..lololol

Uh, what? I'm talking about white, blue collar, Catholic voters.

And since when are older women "Pro Abortion rights?"

You really do fail to understand so many simple concepts.

Yay for simplistic thinking! I'm sure every Hillary supporter especially in states like Kentucky, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, etc. are 100% Pro Choice/"Women's rights."

I have to agree with Phil SOMEWHAT.  True, there are a lot of older secular white Catholic and Jewish women who voted for Hillary and will likely vote Obama.  But there were also the "rosary a day" types who were energized by a woman as a major presidential candidate who are definitely pro-life and in many cases aren't big on a black candidate because they remember the days of race riots and being forced out of their old neighborhood. 

I also think Obama will pickup some people who weren't crazy about Kerry and while they didn't ideologically agree with Bush, they voted for the devil they knew. 

The "Reagan Democrat" is not entriely dead and won't be as much of a factor as it once was in the 1980s, but elements still exist.  If anything a lot of white Catholics, mostly younger, share my views and have some strands of Reagan Democratism on issues such as the death penalty, affirmative action, "FRY MUMIA", etc, but are liberal on the bedroom issues such as birth control, abortion, gay marriage, TV content, etc.

Just because he didn't win them (again, consider his opponent) doesn't mean he doesn't have sway with them. McCain-Santorum vs. Obama-Biden would be nothing like Santorum vs. Casey. Obama-Biden doesn't have the type of appeal that the Casey name has with white, blue collar, Catholic voters.

The difference is that Biden is more of an arrogant asshole, where as Rick is more like the guy who hits you in the back with a chair during a bar fight and then kicks you in the nuts before going after your best friend.  Gotta even the odds.
