Rick Santorum — the same candidate who won't admit that it's increasingly unlikely he'll win the nomination and who's been giving stump speeches referring to Mitt Romney as "the worst" Republican to take on Obama (either on health care or generally, depending on if you believe the New York Times) — wouldn't say no to being the bottom half of that "worst" ticket. As he told CBN's David Brody, he wouldn't rule out running as Mitt's vice-president. In fact, he'd "of course" consider it.  "I'll do whatever is necessary to help our country," said Santorum, which translates roughly from political speak to English as "Please?!?!?!?!?"
