LOL. You need to first stand up and run before you can step down. The only person I read Palin was standing up to was Katie Couric in some network morning program showdown.
So, you still don’t get it? Not only did your man just quit four months before the convention, he did at a pretty humiliating point in his campaign.
Yes it’s probably over for Santorum, and his political career, and I’m sorry he fell into the GOP-e trap.
But, hey, like other posters already pointed out, he and his wife are both lawyers with a nice home in the D.C. area, and there are great lobbying opportunities out there for ex-politicians with connections. Those guys have billing rates of hundreds of dollars per hour!
I dont blame Santorum: he had run into a stone wall. He is being bombarded with negative ads in Pennsylvania and conservatives were not endorsing Romney. If he lost there, his career would be at an end. The fact is that the people who were staging this race had already put their money on Romney. He could run but he couldnt win. Newt is staying in because this is likely his last hurray. All of this reminds me of the Democratic race in 2008, which ended Gene McCarthys political career. So many double-dealers and back-stabbers.
