Good Question

CNN's Wolf Blitzer recently asked conservative commentator Bill Bennett what "one question" he would like to ask Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama. Bennett said he would ask the junior Illinois senator:

"Why are you to the left of NARAL, Barbara Boxer, and Dianne Feinstein when it comes to abortion? Are you really there? I've got to question the guy's moral judgment who doesn't see a problem with killing a baby after it's been born. What is the answer to that question?"

Bennett was of course referring to Obama's fierce public opposition to Illinois' Born Alive Infants Protection Act. The legislation would have declared all live babies legal persons, which would guarantee them the protection of appropriate medical care--even if they were abortion survivors.

Former Gore campaign manager, Donna Brazile, impatiently interrupted the conversation between Blitzer and Bennett quipping: "Bill, you want to have a conversation about narrow issues … but the American people want to talk about gas prices."

Oh really? Thanks for setting our priorities straight, Donna!
