This speech today guarantees that McCain will choose a pro-life Vice President, most likely Mitt Romney, who is also an excellent debater and match for Joe Biden.

I JUST posted on the Biden thread my worries over this...that McCain has been excellent on attacking Barry on every issue but abortion. I must learn to be patient. Still I pray he'll make a pro-life VP choice. ;)

This speech today guarantees that McCain will choose a pro-life Vice President, definitely not a pro-abortionist like Mitt Romney,

If McCain chose RINO Romney after the forum and that speech this morning,

he would be a laughing stock with the Dems...

The Dems would have a field day...

and pro-lifers/conservatives would not trust him again...

Mccain’s VP better have spotless pro-life credentials...

The door is wide open for McCain to pick a woman.
There is no need for him to go even further to the right on abortion as Obama has taken off the left of the chart

I do not recall any other Republican nominee (Reagan, Bush 41, Dole, Bush 43) making abortion a major issue in a Presidential campaign. Sure, they supported pro-life, but no one ever really attacked the Democrats hard on the issue.

This is a big first for McCain, and I think to his credit.

To his new running mate, my congratulations and I’ll get back to you real soon on your debating opponent.

Is there any possible way it could be Dick Cheney?

Ronald Reagan was also a “flip-flopper” on abortion.

At 5:33 PM CDST yesterday evening, I became a Grandpa for the first time. One by one, the family was taken in to see our new grandson. As I looked at him with tears of joy in my eyes, I suddenly thought about all the babies that would never see this same moment and how important it is that we have a leader who understands that abortion is the taking of a human life. Sen. McCain KNOWS this and must appoint a pro-life VP.

Dick Cheney would be a strong VP choice for McCain, and would “lock-in” Wyoming and possibly even Montana for the Republican ticket. /s

Nana, I think the most 'spotless' pro-life Republican on the short list is Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska. She is also 'spotless' on gun control and drilling. And since Barry picked an 'old white guy' maybe McCain choosing a woman could bring in the disgruntled Hillary voters. McCain/Palin...REAL HOPE; REAL CHANGE!

It will be either Palin or Cantor IF mccain believes ProLife is #1 issue for conservatives.

However, Romney remains the fav if mccain believes the economy is primary issue. Romney is also anti-amnesty.
