He explained his point by telling a story about how, back in 1998, when former President Bill Clinton had vetoed the partial-birth abortion ban, the Senate voted to overturn Clinton’s veto. He explained that it was not overturned by a margin of two votes. Santorum, though, had spent much of the night before trying to convince his fellow senators, only to realize that he could not change even one vote.

Mr. Santorum talks a great game, but he has to explain to me why a New Jersey resident like me should ever take him seriously again after he came through this state a few years ago campaigning for the most rabidly pro-abortion Republican in the country, Christie Todd Whitman.

I wonder how much time he spent trying to convince her not to veto New Jersey's partial birth abortion ban. /sarcasm off/
