• VAN SUSTEREN: OK, if you're president tonight, what are you doing about Syria tonight?

    SANTORUM: I think we should be helping the Syrian rebels. I mean, we should be at least providing some arms to them. We should, to the extent that we can through other sources, even provide some -- some other types of support.

    This is -- this is an opportunity to get rid of a satellite country of Iran as Iran is becoming much more menacing. We have an opportunity here to get rid of a very bad actor in the region. And candidly, we can't replace him with anything worse than what they have.

    I mean, that's -- that's sort of the -- you know, you look at Gadhafi. Gadhafi was pretty neutered. Assad has been a very active advocate for Iran and a -- and a tool for them and he -- as far as I'm concerned, we should do what we can, without getting directly involved, to be helpful to the rebels in overthrowing him.

    VAN SUSTEREN: All right, some campaign advice. If you have a chance, go up to Mackinaw Island. There are probably only about 300 votes, at most, during the winter, but it's the most beautiful part of all of Michigan.

    VAN SUSTEREN: It doesn't have many voters in the middle of...

    SANTORUM: I've been there. It's great.

    VAN SUSTEREN: ... winter, but boy, it is -- it is a beautiful place to be. Anyway, Senator, thank you. I hope you come back before the -- in a short time. Thank you, sir.

    SANTORUM: Thanks, Greta.
