Santorum v. Casey

Just finished listening to their debate on Meet the Press via the MTP podcast. Pretty sure that this supporters of both candidates will come out pretty happy, which probably helps Casey a little bit more.

Santorum was on a relentless attack, which is not surprising for a candidate that is down by double digits. Casey appeared to have fairly specific answers to the questions, even if Santorum spent most of his time arguing that he didn't. Santorum also spent some time trying to distance himself, but pretty much by arguing that the administration wasn't conservative or aggressive enough. But, in the end, I think that this race (and that in Missouri) will end up being more a referendum on the Bush Administration than about the two candidates. That being the case, I think I'd rather have a D after my name than an R.
