But the negotiations collapsed in acrimony because Gingrich and Santorum could not agree on who would get to be president. ‘In the end,’ Gingrich says, ‘it was just too hard to negotiate.’

Bloomberg Businessweek has a story about how Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich nearly ran for president together on a quote-unquote “Unity” ticket. 

Hope that second to pick yourself up from fainting helped.

The race for the Republican presidential nomination has always been about restoring the promise of America. Senator Santorum and I share an absolute commitment to that goal.
Mitt Romney • In a statement, released late Tuesday afternoon, thanking Rick Santorum for officially endorsing his campaign. “We share an absolute commitment to reversing the failing policies of the Obama administration,” Romney continued, “from its assault on freedom of conscience to its feckless foreign policy.” Rick Santorum sent an email to supporters late Tuesday night, endorsing Romney, and warning that the GOP “will require all hands on deck if our nominee is to be victorious.”  source (viafollow)

Next to Gingrich’s petulant posturing, Romney looked like a grown-up…In losing in the most undignified manner possible, Gingrich made Romney shine. And for that, Romney owes Gingrich his gratitude.
The Atlantic’s Molly Ball • Arguing that Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum’s prolonged candidacies did, in one sense, benefit Mitt Romney. “By behaving childishly and running totally amateurish campaigns, they made Romney look good,” she writes. There is something to be said for this; however, whether the “I’m not as bad as the other guys!” effect will stick with Romney through the general election seems like an iffy proposition. If anything, their campaigns made Romney look good coming out of the primary, but we’re doubtful that effect will last too long once President Obama’s campaign, which will likely be top-notch, becomes the object of comparison. source (viafollow)

How separate are church and state these days? Let’s ask a cardinal

  • 1960 In a speech on religion during his presidential run, noted Catholic John F. Kennedy famously argued the importance of the separation of church and state, saying “I am the Democratic Party’s candidate for President who happens also to be a Catholic.”
  • 2011 Noted Catholic presidential candidate Rick Santorum said a few, uh, less famous words about the speech: ”I almost threw up. In my opinion it was the beginning of the secular movement of politicians to separate their faith from the public square.”
  • 2012 Noted Catholic Cardinal Timothy Dolan offered his take on both Kennedy’s quote and Santorum’s: “I find myself, believe it or not, agreeing with both of them.” Dolan explained that he thinks Kennedy’s speech has long been misinterpreted. source
