    since he is not running again.

    Maybe he's not comfortable with the idea of his own daughters having this choice? He wouldn't be the first father with such an attitude.

      I have two sons and no daughters.  I'd like to think that if I did have daughters, I'd manage at least to make peace with the idea that my daughters would have this choice.  

      There's a saying, "Every father's daughter is a virgin."  I have a feeling one of the last strongholds of the idea that patriarchs can control the bodies of the women around them will be in fathers trying to control the bodies of their daughters.  I hope Obama can grow up and drop the idea before his daughters do.

      We're all pretty strange one way or another; some of us just hide it better. "Normal" is a dryer setting.
