  •  A Senate Resolution/Rider in support of Roe (none)
    Yes, we need to call the Fundamentalist Republican bluff on social issues.  No more whining, no more blaming the democrats; the Republicans need to produce results this time to keep their supporters happy.

    We should force the issue.  A rider offered on every bill regarding abortion.  Let's see who votes which way.  The Senators from Maine will have to decide if they really want to abdicate on this issue.

    •  This is the only way to make the red states (none)
      understand how they are being used.  Everyday Pelosi should be in front of the mikes saying when are the repubs going to vote to execute woman having abortions?  BTW, I heard rumors of Edwards taking over the DNC on CNN.  What do y'all think?
      •  Clinton as DNC head (none)
        Says Josh Marshall, who hopes that Hillary won't run.
        •  Howard Dean (none)
          I want a fighter with integrity to head the DNC.
          •  Those are all bad ideas (none)
            The DNC head should not be a prominent politician.  It's a dirty job that involves carrying a lot of water.  The business of the party is to promote others who are actually running for office.  They make the real decisions and you have to speak for them.  You have to put into the record the controversial things that officials standing for election don't want to say, and your reputation gets battered over time.

            None of those people want the job, I can guarantee you that.

      •  I doubt it (none)
        Elizabeth was diagnosed with breast cancer on Wednesday.  I doubt he'll be tackling anything so big this year.

      •  what about the men? (none)
        wack off the balls of all the men who rape and commit incest - same for any man caught making a these poor mislead women pregnant without the sancity of marriage. Excute the women that have the abortion but make sure the men own up to their responsibilty too and off with their heads!
    •  Try it the other way around (none)
      Instead of fighting a delaying action down a  slippery slope, go whole hog for a vote on our worst case scenario.

      Abortion and in vitro linked together as a package deal. See how Snowe and Collins vote on that.
