Just because he's courting that doesn't mean that they are going to close the deal and support him.
Put up a pro-abort with a pro-lifer, the pro-lifer's going to win....
As I recall, Obama won the Illinois race against one of America's most outspoken pro-lifers.
The libs will do what Casey, Jr. did in PA and not come right out and said they are pro-life .. they will say they are for less abortions
It's a PR war of words
More and more of the Evangelicals, especially in blue states, are falling for Aids, poverty, and global warming as the top issues they should be concerned with. Those are the ones that he appeals to. Some of the leaders have even pushed being against the reconstruction in Iraq as the "Christian" thing to do. I cannot help but think this had some effect in 2006.
Maybe with Evangelists but not in a national election. Someone who is ardently anti-abortion will never be president.
In light of the fact that Obama absolutely trounced Alan Keyes with 70% of the vote compared to Keyes laughable 27%, your statement borders on the absurd.
