71. what he said is being well overstated. His own record on this issue is solid. The Democratic party

 

as a whole has a far less solid record on this issue...and that is candidates the party has supported and funded. You may not like it, but first, Sanders explained that he has no problem getting elected with the support of conservatives in-spite of his liberal positions, in his home state, and then, to a question with a lot of wiggle room, because what is rigidity to pro-choice...late term elective abortions? ... he simply pacified it with a non-specific yes to return to his main point. You do know that Clinton ran on a ticket with a pro-life Senator don't you? Would you consider him to be rigidly pro-choice?

The important thing is that he hasn't undermined pro-choice legislation, even though he's not comfortable with supporting abortion. The question to Sanders was not, "would you support a candidate who would help to erode women's rights over their own body," nor did the answer imply anything of the sort. Do you want clarification? Fine. But don't pretend his words are already saying something they aren't.
