It is morally acceptable to vote for and support the lesser of two evils if that's all you've got.

You've given me a good rationale for voting for Whitman, but this doesn't mean Santorum has any reason to make an effort to get a fellow Republican elected to a statewide office (in another state!) despite this Republican's pro-abortion credentials.

Another interesting note -- if the New Jersey Republican Party sees no danger in bringing in a staunch pro-lifer like Santorum to campaign for their candidates, then why the hell don't they ever support a pro-life Republican in a statewide election????

Your points are legitimate. I too was disappointed in Santorum when he did this. I do not know how he rationalized it then, nor how he would even today.

You'd have to ask him why he did it. As for me, I trust Rick to make the right decision. He's nothing less than one of the two finest politicians I've had the privilege to hear speak here in the Northeast. The other being Bret Schundler.
