Tom Ridge says Race Would be Different if he were VP

Former Republican Gov. Tom Ridge tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that the presidential race might be in a different place if he had been the vice president selection. As you know, with Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin at his side, Republican Sen. John McCain is trailing Democratic Sen. Barack Obama in the polls -- including the PA polls. Here's the key paragraph from the story: "I think the dynamics would be different in Pennsylvania," Ridge said when asked if he should have been chosen to run as vice president over Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. "I think we'd be foolish not to admit it publicly."
