There are a lot of reasons to support Eric Cantor for VP. There's the usual lines: he raises money, he's young, he's Jewish, etc etc etc. But the real reason I support Eric Cantor is that he fights. The arguments for and against are what they are, but Eric Cantor has been one of the very few members of Congress who has consistently battled the Democrat Congress at every stage and in every capacity he can. He fights the good fight in the trenches, in the House of Representatives where America's Mother-in-Law rules.
Cantor was elected to the House of Delegates in Virginia in 1991. Barrack Obama was elected to the Illinois Senate in 1996, five years later.
Cantor was elected to US Congress in 2000, and has subsequently been re-elected in 2002, 2004, and 2006. Obama was elected to the US Senate in 2004, and has never faced re-election.
