Rick Santorum is a hard guy for me not to like. He’s a fiscal conservative with an obvious passion for social issues, with respect to which he holds solid traditional views.

He appears to be having a great time here at the Straw Poll, and was visibly excited as he introduced Gov. Mike Huckabee, who joined Buddy Holly’s old band “The Crickets” for a couple of songs.

 

 

He received a nice reaction from the crowd when he gave his speech. The crowd especially liked his recounting of his past campaign successes against Democrat opponents as well as his work to sponsor and lead the way in passing pro-life legislation, including a bill that criminalizes the killing of an unborn baby when the mother is assaulted or murdered.

 

His campaign is a long shot, and it may well be that without an extraordinary showing today his campaign is over. That will be a shame, because even though it is true that the Republican field is generally strong regarding traditional views on life and marriage, Santorum is probably the standard bearer for those issues among the current candidates.
