Santorum Hints That He Would Accept Vice President Role In a Romney Administration

Just days after telling reporters that Romneycare makes his rival Mitt Romney the worst Republican to run against President Obama in November, Rick Santorum suggested in an interview with CBN that he might actually consider accepting a spot as his number two, if offered.

After being asked specifically if he would accept a VP slot, he responded by saying, "I would do whatever is necessary to help my country."

In the interview, Santorum also said that he and his family

have been on the trail day in and day out, working toward winning the nomination himself.

"I'm gonna do everything I can; I'm doing everything I can. I'm out there, you know - in the last 10 months I've had five days off: two for Thanksgiving and three for Christmas," he said. "We're busting our tail, because we know that all our futures are at stake in this election, and I don't want to be the guy who has to sit with my granddaughter 20 years from now, telling her about a country where people once were free. I don't want to have that conversation."

So, do you think that Romney would ever offer Santorum the role of VP if he does in fact win the GOP nomination, or have Santorum's comments about the former Mass. governor made that unlikely?
