5. If she doesn't get picked...
Edited on Thu Apr-22-10 10:59 PM by blue_onyx
I doubt it has anything to do with backing "the wrong horse in the primary." Obama doesn't seem like he would to hold a grudge over that.

Being Catholic shouldn't be an issue. I don't believe Granholm has ever done anything to indicate that she won't support Roe v. Wade. She vetoed "partial birth abortion" twice as governor which didn't please Catholics

"Michigan Catholic Conference Vice President for Public Policy Paul Long told LifeNews.com that Governor Granholm showed continued indifference to human life" with her latest veto."

She also supports stem-cell research. I don't believe she would allow her religion to effect her legal views.

She would be a great choice...I hope Obama picks her.
