“Santorum surging in California?”

Excellent to see this as well.

Note that with Newt pulling 17%, Santorum would have an easy win if Newt were to drop out (and the primary were tomorrow).

I’m going to have to pray for Newt to get hammered next Tuesday, and finally bow to the inevitable. I think at this point Santorum should seriously consider him for the VP slot - if they can work together at all.

I don't personally like Newt but I think he'd be ideal as a VP choice. His strength of personality would insure that at least some of his policy ideas would impact a Santorum administration. Between them, they're the perfect good cop/bad cop team. Santorum could explain policy with a smile and Gingrich could apply the whip to congresss.

Santorum to Newsmax: I'd Consider Gingrich for VP

Saying he'd look for a "strong and principled conservative" as a running mate should he win the Republican presidential nomination, former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum tells Newsmax that he certainly would consider rival Newt Gingrich for that vital role.

When asked if he would consider the former House Speaker as number two on his ticket, Santorum said Gingrich had been "tested" by the bruising GOP race and that makes him an attractive vice presidential candidate.

I completely agree. Santorum/Gingrich is pretty close to my ideal ticket at this point.
