Yes, Virginia, there are vice-presidential possibilities: while Obama considers Gov. Kaine, McCain checks out Rep. Eric Cantor, Congress's highest-ranking Jewish Republican (tipping factor in FL as well as VA?). Cantor is a high-energy guy, and very conservative. Though associated mainly with economic and business issues, the National Right to Life Committee gives him a 100% rating.

ETA: Cantor's staffer for child/family issues is a conservative RC. I tell you, this Cantor can really sing!
