In case the message wasn’t strong enough when both Rich and I devoted time Friday to opposing Joe Lieberman on Tom Ridge for McCain’s vice-presidential choice, we have an editorial today making the point.
Joe Lieberman is a profile in courage as a Democrat. But he is a liberal, and one who opposed a ban on partial-birth abortion, a procedure the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan saw as too-close-to-infanticide to support. This year, the Democrats have a nominee who opposed an effort in Illinois to ban infanticide. Today you have the upper hand here, Senator McCain. Don’t mess with clarity. Don’t mess with life.
