I missed the press conference because Trifecta taping ran late today, but here’s part of Rick Santorum’s bow-out message:
“We were very concerned about our roles as being the very best parents has we can be to our children,” Santorum said. “We made a decision over the weekend while this presidential race is over to for me and will suspend our campaign effective today – we are not done fighting.”
I think Santorum would have been a terrible candidate — in the extremely unlikely event that he had won the nomination. I believe he’d have made an even worse President — in the even more unlikely event that he had won the White House.
But this is a terrible reason for a man, for a father, to have to quit anything. You’ll get no gloating from me.
