Tom Ridge Pulls a Huckabee

This is a funny quote:

"I think the dynamics would be different in Pennsylvania," Tom Ridge, the McCain campaign’s national co-chairman, told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review in an interview published Friday. "I think we'd be foolish not to admit it publicly."

The former Secretary of Homeland Security, who was reportedly on McCain’s VP shortlist, added that McCain "had several good choices and I was one of them."

I don't necessarily disagree with the premise that Ridge would potentially help in PA, but it's just that PA would be irrelevant if he were the veep pick.  Either way, his comments are hillariously egotistical -- especially the last line. 

(I stand by my earlier statement on the issue...)
