Is it too late for Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York to enter the Republican Primary? He seems to defend American freedom more than U.S. politicians. The B.C. Catholic has a Catholic News Service story where the tireless cardinal fights for Catholic freedoms against Obama's health mandate:

In a strongly worded letter to his fellow bishops, Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York charged that White House officials failed to consider the U.S. bishops' concerns that the federal mandate governing employer coverage of contraception and sterilization under the health care law violated religious freedom principles.

An invitation from the White House to "work out the wrinkles" regarding the mandate either by rescinding it or at least widening the exemptions on religious grounds failed to reach an agreement and the effort "seems to be stalled," he said in the letter released late March 2.
