  •  i don't think the progress (12+ / 0-)

    will energize their FEMALE base.  it didn't in Missouri.  do you remember Claire McCaskill's brilliant ad campaign after the deadline had passed for Akins to withdraw?  featuring R women speaking of their support for a women's right to choose?  powerful stuff.

     i know Republican women and they may not come out and say they support a woman's right to chose, but they don't support turning back the clock.  a lot of women my age knows someone who died from a botched abortion.   their daughter's have friends who have had legal abortions and gone on with their lives.   even one of my siblings, as unpolitical, by choice, as she can possibly be (she likes her bubble!) knows who "Wendy" is.   by first name.  

    but we need more attention because these guys aren't giving up.
