Kristol Makes Lieberman Argument

Bill Kristol makes the argument in favor of Joe Lieberman:

"But if you’re pro-life, conservative and/or Republican, you certainly don’t want Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid running the country. If a McCain-Lieberman ticket is the best way to thwart that prospect, you could probably learn to live with it — even perhaps to like it.

And Hillary supporters could protest Obama’s glass ceiling by voting for John McCain and the Democratic Party’s 2000 vice presidential nominee. 

Although I would argue it is still a long shot, a Lieberman pick is, perhaps, a more likely scenario today than it was before the Biden pick.

I am curious to what degree a pro-choice pick is a deal-breaker.  Would the GOP convention turn into a donnybrook if the pick was announced -- or would it be applauded as a politically sagacious move?
