3. Before we cannonize Clay ...
... this is the same guy who pulled an about face on an abortion bill back in April. Unfortunately, the link to the article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch is no longer working, but I pulled his quote out of a blog piece I did on him:

"Saying Democrats should be more flexible on hot-button social issues, Rep. William Lacy Clay said Tuesday he will switch his vote on a key abortion bill set for a House vote Wednesday that would make it a crime to help a minor evade a state parental notification law.

"Clay, a liberal Democrat from St. Louis, has opposed similar legislation in the past. But he said he would vote in favor of it Wednesday because 'the bill is good' and Democrats need to be more 'sensible' about some of the politically dicey issues that cost them support among rural and conservative voters in the last election.

"'I'm going to follow my church leadership and vote in favor of this bill,' said Clay, who is Roman Catholic."

(Original article was headlined "Missouri Democrat Clay will switch vote, back abortion bill in House" and ran in the Post-Dispatch around April 20 to 26.)
