ok, how can you cry, beg, and plead, please please stop abortion
then when it fits your needs, look for someone that supports abortion rights

In recruiting Ms. McFarland, Republicans are to some extent reaching back to their original theory that the best challenger to Mrs. Clinton is another tough, telegenic woman who supports abortion rights and may keep some female votes in play.

3. yeah, that's not going to be much of a contest. I just don't get how
they can scream about abortion being murder, then turn around and run a person that supports abortions. how can they do this shit and be taken seriously.

4. because Republicans are entirely full of shit,
and will gladly turn themselves into a pretzel to accommodate whatever notion suits them at any given moment.

2. Does the Democratic Party still have a platform?
I used to think so.

5. They shouldn't
If stopping abortion is so important to them, then it should be their absolute, number one priority. If it takes a human life, then 1.3 million per year is a holocaust that mimics what the Nazis perpetrated. And yet it's usually 4th or 5th on their list, falling after cutting billionaires' taxes, privatizing Social Security, costly ongoing military adventures, and hassling gay people. This needs to be driven home to the pro-life voters. They've controlled both houses and the Executive branch for the past 6 years and they've done nothing significant to attempt to curtail abortion. Why don't they introduce that Constitutional Life amendment? So what if it fails. Introduce it again and again. If they cared that much about the "babies", they would. They are only concerned with their political fortunes and it's obvious to anyone who is the least bit observant.

6. no joke, they pull this act all the time. during the 04 election one
of those repugs was on tv talking about how one of their candidates wasn't a conservative, that he was a moderate.

8. When are they going to care about women dying during
childbirth? Women in this country die in childbirth . The GOP's are going to tell them they will deliver, and their health or life be damned? The suits will be there.

9. She is just a sacrificial lamb, a rich one, but one nonetheless
willing to do a big swan dive for the party and then, goodbye and back to her swanky life.

Waste no more time on her.

10. Isn't this the DA(?) who had the 30 second gap?
While giving a speech, she became completely unglued and went "blue screen mode" when she could not find the next page of her speech?
