I couldn't really see much of what Hillary Clinton stood for. It seems as though she did not really take a firm stand on anything. About abortion, she said, even though she does not personally believe in it, she still does not think it should be illegal. That statement has me really confused. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hillary_clinton

Well Annie, I know about John McCain and the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday issue. It seems that he had no choice but change his mind on that one. So it is not like he suddenly turned into a good person. To me, he is still rotten on the inside. I feel that if Christopher Columbus has a day, surly Martin Luther King earned one.

I think her views on abortion reflect what many of us feel on that very sensitive issue - while we may never consider it for ourselves that doesn't mean we have the right to dictate what other women do with their own bodies. The belief has been for years that abortion should remain safe, legal and rare. Annie

Well I am so very glad that you made sense of that for me. I would never have come up with that understanding. But then again, I will never fully understand abortion at all. And truth be told, I just don't want to. This is what I am up against, being a newbie and all. If I vote Democrat, it's okay to kill babies in abortion. If I vote Republican, then I have accepted this war in Iraq and the killing of our troops. I don't see any point in voting independent and whatever else they have. But it would be nice if one of the two were not promoting legal murder. Is there a such there as a conservative extremist? If there is, that's me.
