McCain-Cantor? - The American Spectator | USA News and Politics

There’s been some talk of Rep. Eric Cantor becoming John McCain’s VP choice, and there are several things he has going for him. He made the American Conservative Union’s list of the “best and the brightest” in Congress in 2007 for achieving a 100 percent rating, so he would be acceptable to the right, he’s been an active McCain surrogate, he’s from the swing state of Virginia, and he could help McCain chip away at the Jewish vote, especially in Florida, and at 45, he’s still young. The drawback is that he’s untested at the national level and as a Congressman, would face the “is he ready to take over if something happens to McCain” question. But McCain could do much worse than picking Cantor.
