You indicated during an interview with Mike Huckabee last year that you would, and I quote, "absolutely" support a personhood constitutional amendment. Would you sign into law a bill that your running mate co-sponsored, that would give fetuses full personhood rights? Yes or no?If he says no, his base will be apoplectic. If he says yes, he's an unacceptable extremist. If he dodges and weaves, he'll look craven, indecisive and weak.
Whichever way he goes, Romney's answer will be a major topic of discussion during the usual post-debate media frenzy and bring the gender gap back into play. It's a lose-lose for Romney.
