A bridge too far, Maverick

If McCain thinks he's going to get away with a pro-choice VP, he's insane.  There's no way he'd get away with it.  There are enough conservatives out there that think the party has abandoned them, and the life issue could well be the last thing that pushes them into the "Let Rome Burn" camp. 

Beyond that, you have a lot of people who are Christian Democrat types like Huckabee, who might be sympathetic to Obama's socialist vision because it reflects their own desire to turn the government into a mission church, but things like the life issue keep them GOP.  There are also a number of Catholics who fall into a similar camp. 

There are also a lot of evangelicals nervous that they're going to get screwed by the GOP like the rest of us in the conservative movement, and they may be willing to bail and throw 2008 to the Democrats to see to it that the GOP knows that they aren't expendable, and won't be taken for granted. 

I'm guessing that this is because he's considering Ridge to try and get PA.  I honestly don't know that he'd deliver PA.  Joe would probably be better suited to answer that question, maybe he'll drop by or post something, but I just don't think he'd be able to do it.
