    In a speech to about 1000 abortion rights supporters near the New York State Capitol, Mrs Clinton firmly restated her support for the Supreme Court's ruling in Roe v. Wade, which legalized abortion nationwide in 1973. But then she quickly shifted gears, offering warm words to opponents of legalized abortion and praising the influence of "religious and moral values" on delaying teenage girls from becoming sexually active.

    "There is an opportunity for people of good faith to find common ground in this debate-we should be able to agree that we want every child born in this country to be wanted, cherished, and loved," Mre Clinton said

    Mrs Clinton, widely seen as a possible candidate for the Democratic Part's presidential nomination in 2008, appeared to be reaching out beyond traditional core Democrats who support abortion rights. she did so by not by changing her political stands ,but by underscoring her views in preventing unplanned pregnancies, promoting adoption, recognizing the influence of religion in abstinence and championing what she has long called "teenage celibacy."


    Boy she really learned something from this last election!
    Im a tad skeptical with this :bsflag:

    Hillary is a nut-job. She's the female John Kerry.

    Hillary is taking cues from her husband who was very good at straddling the fence on every issue.

    Hillary is hoping that the blacks and Hispanics are as dumb as she thinks they are. She is appealing to them to stay in the party, because the dems are not as 'left wing' as painted. :rolleyes:

    If you look at the content of her statements she flawlessly reaches out to the other side without changing her position or risking anything to her own political future. Sure anyone can say Im for abortion rights, but I also would love to see less of them happen......... takes no guts to take that position. Also I wouldn't trust her as far as I could throw her that she will actually do anything about teenage celibacy once elected.

    Oh I did. Truth is, the dems lost significant number of Hispanic votes and more blacks than they thought possible. Both groups have moral center, much of which is concentrated towards life.

    Hillary is banking on that throwing out some words will keep them in the fold, as they are too stupid to realize that she is not changing her position.

    Actually I think if the GOP could find a rational voice, the Blacks are literally more church-going and conservative on 'family values' than the Hispanics.
