"None of them, nah," Santorum told Whispers. He had just appeared on the second episode of the re-launched "Crossfire," sitting in with hosts liberal Van Jones and conservative S.E. Cupp, and discussing Syria alongside former Sen. Joe Lieberman. "If I'm nervous about going up against them, why would I think about running for president?" he said, leaving the door open for another White House bid. "We're thinking about it," he acknowledged.
