WASHINGTON -- Vice presidential support has arisen for former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge, as it did eight years ago, and again has caused consternation in the pro-life movement and among conservative Catholics.

Speculation about Ridge, a pro-choice Catholic, for vice president in 2000 caused a furor.

Ridge is a supporter and friend of McCain and, like him, is a decorated Vietnam combat veteran. His value on the national ticket would be trying to dislodge Pennsylvania from the Democrat [sic] grasp.
