Santorum's No Moderate

What do John McCain, Bob Dole, Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush circa 1992 have in common? They all ran for president as moderate Republicans and they were all losers. Rick Santorum will not be lumped in with that crowd. He told supporters in Pasco, Wash., on Friday, "Every time we've run as a conservative, we've won," referring to the Republican Party at large. "Why? Because Americans want a choice. If it's a difference between somebody, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, you know what, this country is going to probably ... stick with the person they know. We need to have a sharp contrast. Someone who paints a very different vision for America." Washington state will hold caucuses on Saturday.
