I reported Tuesday that Hillary Clinton is giving Barack Obama heat for voting “present” on certain bills as IL state senator, seven on abortion issues, according to Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times. I know three of those were on the Born Alive Infant Protection Act package of bills.
Well, there has been such a rich development.
MSNBC reported yesterday on a press conference arranged by the Clinton campaign with Ellen Malcolm, head of the pro-abortion group, EMILY’s List, to tout Hillary as the best credentialled pro-abort presidential candidate. EMILY’s List raises funds for pro-abort female legislative candidates, and has a dismal record to show for it, btw. Continued MSNBC:
Malcolm hadn’t mentioned Obama by name, but she said that those who vote “present” at tough times don’t show a true commitment to leadership – referring to Obama’s “present” votes on some anti-abortion measures while serving in the Illinois state Senate.
Does Malcolm really want to go there?
The fact is Hillary voted in favor of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act as U.S. Senator, one of the very bills she and EMILY are nailing Obama for voting “present” on as state senator. Was it not better to vote “present” than “yes”? Is that the kind of leadership EMILY wants?
This point is begging for someone in the MSM to pick up on, particularly since the Obama and Clinton campaigns are vying for pro-abort affections.
