Karen Santorum- separation of …..married ideologies?

Proof positive that it’s hard if not impossible to expect that people will be able to separate your personal ideologies from the actions you’re expected take at a later place in time. 

Can anyone believe that Rick Santorum would “do nothing about birth control” if elected president?  I couldn’t be so certain, but Santorum’s wife, Karen, seemed very certain of it during her interview on Piers Morgan Tonight.  It sounded a little like a guarantee, but nothing was ever signed on-camera.

Separation of personal religious belief from political action in office- that’d be surprising, coming from such a far right ideology that is associated not with separation but with integration of personal convictions and political processes- like secularism vs. a church state.

So is this what we can expect?  How do we know?  In the realm of the real world, jobs have been lost for such ideological disclosures from employees.  Although there was a place in time very recently that  considered it an invaluable ethic to be able to separate a personal and inherently selfish belief system from a government of the people, that trait appears to be lost to time.

Discounting Santorum’s own political motivations, what about any new bill proposals- similar to the Blunt Amendment- should he be in office?  Can he be relied upon to stand with his wife’s pronouncement of his intention to leave the issue of birth control alone?  Was this even a genuine assurance? What do you think?  How should we interpret the information at hand?
