John McCain was asked if he'd rule out a pro-choice V.P. like Tom Ridge or Joe Lieberman. He said he would not rule out Tom Ridge who is pro-choice, but he would have a problem with a pro-gay candidate like NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg!
He said, "Tom Ridge is one of the great leaders and he happens to be pro-choice. And I don't think that that would necessarily rule Tom Ridge out." "I think it's a fundamental tenet of our party to be pro-life but that does not mean we exclude people from our party that are pro-choice. We just have a--albeit strong--but just it's a disagreement. And I think Ridge is a great example of that. Far more so than Bloomberg, because Bloomberg is pro-gay rights, pro, you know, a number of other issues."
