More conservative, quite possible. Conservative? not even close. Why give credibility to someone who has no idea what conservative means?

I would rather have her than Santorum the psychotic religious lunatic. Hell I'd rather have the damned Taliban governing this country. At least they're open about their sexist and religious craziness. Santorum is a delusion freak who wants to turn this country into a seventh century Catholic theocracy. Worse, he doesn't have the guts to admit it.

Go on. Nominate the crazy freak. You'll lose every single state in the union including Utah and Idaho.

If Hillary Clinton were elected in 2016, she would not be the oldest President.

She would, on January 20, 2017, become the fifth-oldest person to ever hold the office, and the second-oldest at their inauguration. She would not, at that time, be a septuagenarian.

Even if she served two full terms, exiting the Presidency on January 20, 2025, she would still be almost nine months younger than Ronald Reagan was on January 20, 1989, when he left the White House.

Yep. Republicans are notorious for nominating the next guy in line. Plus they're convinced, at least right now, that they have to double down on the ultra conservative message if they want to be successful and abandon the moderate Republican candidate, and Santorum fits right into that ultra conservative mold.

Socially, he fits perfectly.

The rest, he can strategically tweak as necessary.

That doesn't mean he'll be the nominee, but I think if he tosses his hat in the ring he clearly starts with several distinct advantages.

Don't believe that. The fringe, the loud ones, may talk that talk but even THEY know that strategry is over. They won't be playing that card again. Trust that.

Maybe they should tap Ryan again, seeing how popular he turned out to be this go-round.
