Obama and the Born-Alive Act


As I mentioned several weeks ago, veteran politicos in Ohio told me that focus groups show Obama’s vote on the Induced Birth Infant Liability Act is a sleeper issue. Hardly anyone knows about it but when informed the nearly universal reaction is revulsion — even from pro-choicers. The issue is radioactive for Obama, but political mavens assert that raising the issue is somewhat dicey — the messenger will be tarnished also.

If that’s true (I’ll defer to the experts on such matters), it may fall to the press to raise the issue. Don’t hold your breath.
