Catholics & The Veepstakes

A reader makes a worthwhile point: “in light of Bill Richardson’s name being bandied about as Kerry’s veep: Just how likely is it that the Democratic party is going to nominate two Catholics for president and vice president, even two wishy-washy, pro-Choice Catholics? I say not very likely. Richardson for Secretary of State, doncha think?”

Of course, Catholics–or at least half of them–haven’t given Democratics reason to worry about Catholics voting as Catholics in the polling booth, but with some bishops reminding congregants of their duties, and months to go yet…it’s an interesting point, anyway.
