What pure, unadulterated
McCain's answer was unequivocal. He helped cement the pro-life section of the base and also cemented his appeal to swing-vote Dem Catholics who are critical in Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Obama wandered all over the map and still went nowhere.
That was my take on the title.
McCain didn’t “navigate” the issue, he answered it based on his core values.
Bambi, if he has core values, has to hide them and “navigate” the issue.
