Obama can’t get them all – but, he can get a large enough chunk by selecting a Catholic VP.
Weird timing – I posted an abortion related Catholic vote comment here yesterday at noon and received the above link via email from The New York Times around 4 pm. I’m not sure when the NY Times article was originally posted, but, it had nothing to do with my comment.
Regardless, I assure you Obama’s VP will be a Catholic. There’s a reason Caroline Kennedy is vetting potential candidates.
While I previously posted that Bob Casey Jr. could be in the running, I think Kaine’s political experience and carrying Virginia is probably more important when vetting a VP candidate. How important is the Latino vote and/or New Mexico? Answer: Pretty fcking important. Bill Richardson is a Catholic with vast foreign and energy policy experience. Interesting that you don’t hear his name mentioned that often as of late. Is Judas the dark horse?
